Legal Problems in Cybersecurity and Cyber Conflict
Exam Type: No Exam
Cybersecurity and cyber conflict pose unique legal problems for governments, companies and citizens. The way those problems are resolved will shape the future of the internet. The United States has established a new military command for cyberspace while simultaneously touting the “freedom to connect” as an aspect of fundamental human rights. Computer systems and networks remain insecure, as sensitive commercial and government data continues to be leaked or stolen at increasing rates. This course will examine the legal problems confronting the United States and its international partners in addressing network and computer insecurity while upholding privacy, civil liberties and other fundamental values.
