Rep. Pine's Inbox: 2012 Cybercrime Legislation
The 2012 legislative session is fast approaching and my colleagues and I are hard at work preparing legislative packages to solve the challenges our state is facing. Many residents have expressed an interest this year in protecting Hawaii residents from the growing threat of crimes committed via the Internet. I'm working on a suite of bills to address those concerns.
We must work to strengthen computer fraud laws to make them as strong as identify theft statutes, increase penalties for unauthorized computer access use, require local and out-of-state internet service providers to comply with Hawaii law enforcement and explore the idea of licensing web designers.
