    Or we could go back to the old fashioned way of communication that Trump desires...

    And the cyber crimes will rise and rise knowing that prosecution is very unlikely to occur. Especially so with the Trump administration marching in In five years there has been only 63 computer fraud prosecutions?? That‘s a joke right? I know about 63 people myself that have been a victim of cyber related crimes on a serious level. What I feel is people need to be responsible and should be required at minimum to have a basic knowledge of technology by participating in a 1,000 hour cyber security course. This is our only recourse as justice officials are not taking this seriously enough nor are they skilled enough. The courses should explain the benefits of encryption, tor, proxifying your network, multi step notifications, all of which would be an additional layer of security lawyers especially would benefit from to protect themselves and still maintain lawyer/ client confidentiality effectively. I am not an attorney I am a former client. People in vulnerable situations should be top priority in maintaining confidentiality. Cyber criminals need to be brought to justice. There is zero deterrents and the crimes will continue until there is policy in place.
