Step 4: Write the CFAA Analysis
After completing your research on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, write a one- to two-page analysis of the statute and its effectiveness. This analysis will be Exhibit A for the final assignment.
Include in your analysis:
Step 6: Computer Crime Comparison Table
Now that you have identified CFAA clones from at least three states, you will compare and contrast them with one another and the CFAA. Be sure to include specific vulnerabilities that the statutes are intended to address regarding computer access. Document your conclusions in the first section of the Computer Crime Comparison Table titled “Statute Comparisons.” This table will aid you in developing your solutions.
Step 7: Research State Case Judicial Opinion
So far in this project, you have familiarized yourself with cybercrime and laws that were written to protect against cybercrime. In this step, you will determine how effective you believe these statutes to be. Identify at least one actual use case for each state as well as for the CFAA to acquaint yourself with how well state/CFAA laws have been implemented. Continue to complete the Computer Crime Comparison Table that you began in Step 6. Document your conclusions in Section 2, Actual Cases.
Step 10: How to Write an Oral Statement to Congress
Now that you have developed your solutions, you are ready to create a draft of your oral statement. To get started, complete the following:
Review best practices for preparing an oral statement to a Congressional committee or other policy-making body or public forum.
Create a five- to seven-page written draft of your statement.
Reference the CFAA and at least on
Step 11: Written Statement
Now that you have a draft of your written statement, it is time to finalize it in order to prepare for your oral statement. Be sure to incorporate any feedback your instructor provided into the final version.
Your goal in delivering this statement is to educate Congress on the implications this legislation will have on your industry. It is important that your statement is clear, concise, and demonstrates your knowledge of the issues. For more tips on how to deliver an oral statement to a congressional committee, consult Delivering an Oral Statement for guidance.
Submit your five- to seven-page written statement with the following attached as appendices: Cybercrime Awareness Summary, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act Analysis, and Computer Crime Comparison Table. The appendices do not contribute to the length of the written statement.
Before you submit your assignment, review the competencies below, which your instructor will use to evaluate your work. A good practice would be to use each competency as a self-check to confirm you have incorporated all of them in your work.
1.3: Provide sufficient, correctly cited support that substantiates the writer’s ideas.
2.2: Locate and access sufficient information to investigate the issue or problem.
7.4: Align an organization’s security posture to applicable laws, statutes, and regulatory documents.
Step 12: Record Your Oral Statement
Congratulations! You are now ready to record your statement. The type of device that you will use to make your recording will determine how you will record the audio file. Refer to the documentation for your specific device for more information. Once you are ready to move forward, record your oral statement and submit the final version in MP3 format to the assignments folder.
