President's Working Group on Unlawful Conduct on the Internet, The Electronic Frontier: The Challenge of Unlawful Conduct Involving the Use of the Internet (Feb. 2000) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This report responded to the directive of Executive Order 13133 and set forth a strategy for responding to unlawful conduct on the Internet and for ensuring a safe and secure online environment.

The Working Group recommended a three-part strategy for addressing unlawful conduct on the Internet:

  • Second, law enforcement needs and challenges posed by the Internet should be recognized as significant, particularly in the areas of resources, training, and the need for new investigative tools and capabilities, coordination with and among federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, and coordination with and among our international counterparts; and
  • Third, there should be continued support for industry self-regulation and the development of methods — such as "cyberethics" curricula, appropriate technological tools, and media and other outreach efforts — that educate and empower Internet users to minimize the risks of unlawful activity.
