One of the concepts that were interesting to me was the idea of bulletproof hosting that was mentioned in the Video "The Most Dangerous Town on the Internet: Where Cybercrime goes to Hide".
These hosting providers know that there is illegal activities uploaded and distributed through their networks, but do nothing to stop it.
These providers do not comply with national or international laws and the hosting sites are maintained in countries with fewer regulations. With the cloud becoming such a huge part of the hosting market, now a lot of these organizations have more resources to keep their sites live. Law enforcement has a difficult time prosecuting these cases because of different jurisdictions, laws, and other issues.
Bullet proof hosting is very profitable for these organizations, and they prefer to pretend that they don't know what's being hosted (The Most Dangerous Town on the Internet: Where Cybercrime Goes to Hide, 2017). For these hosting organizations, the issue is that they want total control and their customers to have total control.
The problem is that by doing this, they are supporting some very bad organizations and it enables for cyber crime to continue to exist. By eliminating these hosting services, it will not solve the problem, but at least it helps to cripple their reach and forces these organizations to work harder.
