Abstract

The question of how the law can deal with the problem of internet security is addressed in this volume. Starting with the fact that the internet is structurally insecure, the author finds that the uncertainty this causes must be countered with legal means, particularly when it comes to controlling information about weak spots. Hannfried Leisterer’s study examines whether and to what extent information management law can contribute to ensuring internet security.

Abstract

Competent adult internet users voluntarily disclose vast amounts of personal data. As such disclosure can cause great harm, governments may feel that through minor interventions they can protect their citizens from disclosure that is not in the latters' best interest. However, such actions can infringe upon the rights of the users' and of the data collectors', and are only licit when justified. Neither the German nor the US government has the duty or the power to coerce the privacy choices of competent adult users for the sole purpose of protecting them against dangers caused by themselves. Instead, it is suggested that governments should focus on limiting specific harmful disclosure.
