‘White hat’ hackers are vital to internet security

Some hackers identify vulnerabilities – serving as the internet’s immune system – but new EU legislation fails to recognise their value, argues MEP
The European Parliament’s home affairs committee, on June 6, voted to endorse a legislative agreement reached with the member states on new European Union criminal law rules governing cyber-attacks; attacks against information systems, also known as hacker attacks. We opposed the new law due to the failure to properly deal with security concerns or to differentiate between different types of system breaches and hackers.
