Key Points To Remember

  • Securing personal computers is not easy, especially for the non-technical end user.

  • Non-technical end users won't take the trouble required to secure their PCs unless they're compelled to do so.

  • If enforced, a federal law can compel users to employ "best practices."

  • The best way to ensure enforcement is to let the users enforce it by suing problem users in local courts, as in the junk fax law.

  • The goal of such a law is to force end users to use at least a minimal level of "best practice" efforts to secure their computers.

  • Such a law must allow "best practices" and "no known defense" as affirmative defenses and "first offense" to mitigate penalties.
