By Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine @ 10:57 PM :: 6141 Views :: Energy, Environment

Hearing Tomorrow, Jan. 26: Help Law Enforcement Investigate Cybercrime


As you know, I have been fighting for victims of cybercrime in Hawaii. A key part of our cybercrime package this year is HB 2288, a bill to help law enforcement gather evidence to prosecute cybercriminals by requiring internet service providers to keep consumer records for a longer period of time. Currently, some information is saved for less than seven days which does not allow law enforcement to gather evidence to investigate or prosecute. A copy of the bill can be found here.

HB 2288 will be heard tomorrow morning in the Committee on Economic Revitalization and Business. If you are able, please testify in person or send written testimony in support of this important measure. Details on how to testify are below.

While every effort will be made to copy, organize, and collate all testimony received, materials received on the day of the hearing or improperly identified or directed to the incorrect office, may be distributed to the Committee after the hearing.
