Japanese and American Computer Crime Policy
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The development of a strong information‐based economy is dependent upon the trust and belief of its users and customers in the integrity and security of information. National policy plays an enormous role in not only bolstering the trust of the people, but can also be effective in deterring cyber crimes and protecting critical data from unauthorized or malicious access, reproduction, or destruction. This thesis compares the American Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and the Japanese Unauthorized Computer Access Law in order to glean knowledge that can be used to make policy recommendations. Subsequently, these recommendations can be used to create more effective information security policy on a national level that will reduce cyber crime and increase people’s trust of information systems
