Securing our digital infrastructure and sensitive information from malicious actors and data breach is critically important in the Digital Age. Government, the private business sector, and individual users all have important roles to play. It is equally critical, however, that our cybersecurity laws focus on true threats without invading personal privacy or criminalizing common Internet uses.
Ill-conceived laws that undermine technological progress not only fail us today, they can also become obstacles to the innovations of tomorrow. Zoe will seek to reform computer crime laws in ways that preserve individual privacy, curb over-criminalization of everyday behaviors, keep penalties proportional to violations, and do not create new vulnerabilities.

· Aaron’s Law – H.R.2454:This bipartisan legislation, named in honor of Aaron Swartz, clarifies that the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) does not criminalize mere violations of terms of service, website notices, and agreements. If enacted, it would bring greater balance to penalties under CFAA by curbing redundant charges and inflated sentencing.
