Should governmental prevention efforts be mandated to prevent attacks on private interests

Cyber Security

  1. Title: Priorities

Historically, law enforcement has been more focused on responding to incidents than actually preventing criminal activity. However, espionage, terrorism, and cyber-crime are far different than traditional crime. As a result, law enforcement (along with military and intelligence) efforts in these arenas have placed a much higher value on prevention than in most other crimes. However, this prevention aspect has predominately existed to benefit the government’s interests more than private corporations or citizens.

Throughout his book Clarke consistently theorizes a cyber-war that attacks private or non-military targets. Is Clarke accurate in this viewpoint? Should governmental prevention efforts be mandated to prevent attacks on private interests as well? Or should the resources be spent on protecting the most vital aspects of the government? Is there a middle ground?

  1. Memory vulnerabilities and subdomain takeover vulnerabilities allow attackers to potentially take over user accounts and/or systems. Between these two types of vulnerabilities, is one more damaging than the other? Explain your position in 200 words or more.
