The CFAA has imprisoned many people, and many people want changes to the CFAA today. The CFAA was made to cover the majority of computer crimes. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act was created because the United States Secret Service, and other government agencies needed a law to allow them to investigate cyber-crimes. The United States government also needed a way to discourage and stop people from hacking, accessing data, and many other internet crimes from a government computer. With computers on the rise, and the government converting to computers, the government needed a way to discourage and prosecute someone that damaged or gained access to the government’s information, and any other kind of computer.
This papers purpose is to inform and help with ways to prevent individuals from becoming targets of cybercrime. As of today, many members of society have become very dependent on the use of technology. We rely on the Internet for banking, buying things, and staying in touch. Businesses rely on their networks for interacting with clients, processing transactions, reaching new markets. Transportation, financial, energy, and communications systems, as well as our government and military, rely heavily on computer networks to function.
How can users/organisations safeguard against these attacks? In order to avoid the attacks mentioned above, users have to take precautions. Here are some few habits you should adopt to safeguard against malwares. Most organisations whether big or small require the skills of a network professional to assist in preventing emerging computer security threats. • Make use of safe and strong password that will be hard for other people to crack and be careful while entering critical credentials • Users must be careful about where you are downloading data as viruses and adware could be attached to your file.

So we need by way of computer security to safeguard our will not get pecuniary loss. What is important for computer security? Computer security is most important on our digital world. This is because, many times computer and network security is not thought about until the problem appear. At this time, the vulnerability could cause huge problems and establishment of a safety plan and emergency plans.
Most of the time, the computer user does not even know that there are ways into the system. This is because most of the weaknesses that are exploited are weaknesses that are widely distributed in commercial software. The largest problem that is facing the computer industry as a hole is computer crime in general. The definition of a computer crime is any criminal act that uses a computer as a means of committing the crime. Unauthorized bank and wire transfers account for millions of dollars in losses each year.
More and more things are being tracked on computers, it's essential to understand how to protect it from getting into the wrong hands. Who are we protecting ourselves from?

Technology has made information accessible, but it has also increased its vulnerability.
3.6 Incident Response Incident response is the method for dealing with the security of a computer system when there is an attack. Incident response activities include incident verification, analyzing and containing the attack, collecting and preserving data, fixing the problem, and restoring services. Hence it is very essential to revise the organization's incident response plan and ensure that the differences between the computing environment of the organization and the cloud are addressed. This is a prerequisite for transitioning of applications and data but it is overlooked most of the time. To ensure security and privacy in cloud computing, it is important for the service provider and the subscriber to collaborate and formulate a well-defined incident response plan.
