Opinions - Will the internet be regulated?
I saw this article today that talked about the government regulating computer security in cars. I understand the main reason is personal safety, but it begs the question when will the government step in to regulate the internet in general because of the explosion of cyber attacks. The internet currently is the Wild West and I believe if we, as information security professionals, don’t solve the current threats somehow that the government will step in and solve it for us. Could that be in the form of paying to use the internet or government issued accounts? Just from the technological side of it and not the political side of it, I would like to hear your opinions or ideas about that.
