EU plans to punish hackers for cyber attacks




The European Commission passed the Civil Liberties approved the proposal to criminalize offenses related to cyber attacks making it legally responsible individuals within companies.


For example, if a company hire a hacker to access the database a competitor, then the company will be legally responsible for this, or the act was without knowledge of either.


Members of the European Union should from now on to ensure that their networks are available nationwide at any time with a response time in emergencies less than eight hours to prevent proliferation of attacks across the border.


Essentially, the decision says that the most cyber attacks (cyber attacks) computer systems will be prosecuted at least two years' imprisonment and a maximum penalty of five years if, for example, economic losses resulting from the attack. Even the possession or distribution of hacking software prosecuted from now on.
