“Chris Doggett, managing director for Kaspersky Lab North America, agreed that any legislation enacted shouldn’t end up prohibiting the techniques and methods used by legitimate security researchers, security consulting companies, and security vendors. He warns that we can’t “handcuff” the very people and organizations we rely on to defend us from the cybercriminals.
Doggett also stressed that mandated information sharing could do more harm than good. “It should not cross-over into the area of broad-reaching surveillance (in conflict with our right to privacy), nor should regulations be enacted that force information disclosures which compromise criminal investigations. And of course, we must safeguard against information being disclosed which causes incremental damage to the victims of the attacks or unduly punishes those who are not our true adversaries in the battle against cybercrime.””
