The Attorney General is holding a summit today to look at ways the state can protect people from identity theft online. Attorney General Chris Koster says as it is right now, technology is improving much faster than the state can write laws protecting people.
He says this summit was scheduled after the News of the World scandal, where a paper was hacking into the voicemails of celebrities for information.
He says right now in Missouri, attaching a GPS tracking device to someone else’s car is not illegal, but he says it should be. He says the summit will look at everything from hacking voicemail to cyber stalking.
