Some relevant concepts to take into account:
- There must be arguments on both sides i.e. the proposition is both true and wrong, and valid
and not fair
- Different stages of development would render considerations much different. For example,
when internet or even computer was less popular or universal, it is fair for the victims. But in
the modern world, it is argued that anyone should have a minimum level of cyber security
- Different parts of the world may also be afforded different considerations. For example, rural
communities are given less opportunities of acquiring adequate level of cyber security. It is not
fair to say that people in the rural communities commit their own fault I being exploited by
- What are the different types and nature of cybercrime? For example, hacks, inappropriate
contents and cyber rubbers and political cyber campaigns. These would be given different
answers? Many more examples and discussions of the different considerations.
- What is the fair minimum knowledge of cyber security? Does this then can protect people from
not being cyber attacked? Computer and cyber advancement is happening day by day. Can
normal people catch up and are expected to catch up to protect themselves?
- What are the arguments for the proposition?
- What are the arguments against the proposition?
- Organise the two sides of the arguments in a logical way and quote real-life examples, sources,
references and research findings.
- Discuss factual and industry concepts and then develop the arguments with logical flow and
arrive at a conclusion.
- Conclusion more likely on the direction that the proposition is to a certain extent true, but is not
fair and not true as normal people cannot be expected to be on the same quick pace of the cyber
Possible Plan of the essay to be developed further:
- What is cybercrime, its nature, and its major types, and brief development?
- What is the reasonable standard and expectation on cyber security?
- To what extent can cyber security measures be able to combat cybercrime, and what can be
- Discuss public data and researches about the nature of cybercrime and the proportion of them
arising from irresponsible cyber security actions
- Develop the argument that cybercrime can be prevented to a big extent if normal people conduct
reasonable cyber security measures
- Discuss about public data and researches about serious cybercrimes which can only be
prevented by professionals or that they cannot be combated at all.
- Develop the argument that many types of cybercrime cannot be prevented for the average
careful person who has observed reasonable cyber security measure.
- Conclusion: summarise both sides of the arguments and conclude on one side with basis.
