Book: Gus Martin , Understanding Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives, and Issues 6th Edition SAGE Publications ISBN-13:978-1506385815 ISBN-10:9781506385815 MS 322 Response 15 Response. New technologies need to always be regulated at all times. Because privacy is and should continue to be a huge part of living in a democratic society. There are laws that help with how your information is handled with boundaries between individuals and institutions. There are also others laws considering on how your information is used as well. Understanding the needs of surveillance in todays age, but also protecting peoples privacy rights might be a little harder for some to understand. But this is an obstacle that has to be dealt with daily, from the United States counterintelligence teams. New technology continues to become more advanced every day, and that makes it hard for laws to stay up to date with this technology. However the law is the law, but there still needs to be a line that cannot be crossed. When it comes to regulating technology, to our knowledge the United States does a pretty good job of giving us our privacy. But they could also be listening or watching us without us even having a clue I'm sure. So we as a society may never figure that out but I think we try to not think about it. I believe that regulating the technology should really just come down to morals. I understand not everyone has a lot of morals nowadays, but still there should be that factor in people that it is not morally right to use technology while breaking the law just to get information on them and use it against them. I think that you can if they pose a threat like terrorists organizations, but not against a burglar that you believe broke into the local coffee shop. Terrorist groups and threats to nations is free game in my opinion. But that is where the morals come in is when it is used on people of your own for bad intentions.

Regulating New Technologies
New technologies are driving modern business and service models, and this has presented
regulators with pressure to strike a balance among competing demands. There is also a growing
need to protect citizens and at the same time allow businesses and innovations to flourish.
Policymakers can regulate new technologies through several approaches. Adaptive regulation is
the first strategy that relies on trial and error and co-design of standards and regulations. Through
more frequent feedback loops, regulators can easily assess policies against the set standards
(Kaal & Vermeulen, 2017). Regulatory institutions can use various tools to obtain such feedback,
including establishing policy labs, designing regulatory sandboxes, and crowd-sourcing
Regulatory bodies can also provide representation to businesses in the governance
process through self-regulatory and private institutions for standard-setting. The soft law method
can be used as a regulatory approach for new technologies. These represent arrangements or
instruments that generate substantive expectations that are indirectly enforceable thus providing
another instrument for drifting to more adaptive standardization (Moses, 2013). Soft law
methods may include codes of conduct, informal guidance, best practice guidance, accreditation,
third-party certification, and business self-regulation.
To regulate new technology, an overarching regulatory system has to be established.
Policymakers need to identify a suitable regulatory structure for t...
