Corporations, non-profits and government agencies are under constant cyberattack. Starting with the question of what is cybersecurity, this course will explore the range of legal and policy questions posed when a data breach occurs, including questions of criminal law, incident response, civil liability, regulatory enforcement, national security law, and the law of war. It will examine how standards of care are being defined for cybersecurity. It will seek to offer insights on governance and risk management relevant to in-house counsel, private attorneys, and government officials. While the focus will be on U.S. law and policy, reference will be made to international norms. Enrolled students will be required to complete readings on bCourses before the first day of class.

This course is for credit/no credit. Attendance is mandatory.
