    A legal system rife with outdated laws never designed to cope with such new technologies as VOIP is just one of the worries facing Stephen Treglia, chief of the technology crime unit in the district attorney's office of New York's Nassau County.

    "This has been a tremendous curve for the legal system to adapt to," said Treglia at this week's InfoSecurity conference, where he and other experts discussed how they try to cope with multiple challenges, such as the botnet threat, controlling hackers and devising cost-effective ways to maintain voice and data communications during emergencies. He said federal and state lawmakers have had a hard time keeping up with the enormous technical changes brought about by IP-based communications and the Web.
