Abstract:

One of the main aims of information systems security (ISS) is to prevent unauthorized access to and tampering with information systems resources. In April 1993 the first ever computer crime legislation came into existence in Hong Kong. Issues relating to computer fraud, hacking, and other types of threats to ISS are addressed by the legislation. As a legislative tool used in the control of computer crime, the Hong Kong experience is worth examining because it is the first major effort of this kind in the important and fast growing Far East region. In critically examining this legislation and its implications on ISS management, contributes towards a better understanding of the regulatory control of computer crime and its policy implications. Makes comparisons with countries which have a longer history of computer crime control.
