Please join the Privacy Law Committee at this
exciting and interactive Cybersecurity Conference hosted by Roger Williams
University on June 17th-20th.
President Obama's Executive Order (EO) has pushed cybersecurity to the top of
the domestic and international security agenda. It has taken center stage not
only for government, but for business and the professions as well, as the EO
requires goverment and industry to agree by December 2013 on a cybersecurity
framework, with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Commerce
Department taking the lead. In an unprecedented move, White House National
Security Advisor Tom Donilon recently called on China to stop cyber intrusions
that have harvested infomation about critical U.S. infrastructure and pilfered
trade secrets. The U.S. military's growing Cyber Command eyes international law
on the use of force, while the longtime "Title 10 - Title 50" debate on military
versus covert action hovers over domestic law authorities. Whenever government
and business seek to regulate the massive data at risk from cyber intrusions,
privacy and civil liberties issues emerge.
Cyber crime has also proliferated, through burgeoning efforts to steal trade
secrets, undermine privacy and confidentiality in health care and legal data,
and defraud consumers. While cyber is increasingly important, only a few experts
and practitioners have a working knowledge of how cyber interacts with law,
policy, and regulation. Cyber Threats and Cyber Realities fills that gap.
Cyber Threats and Cyber Realities, jointly sponsored by the Roger Williams
University School of Law and School of Justice Studies, will be an interactive
forum with nationally known experts and practitioners on cyber law, policy, and
regulation. Organized in two two-day modules, attendees will learn about
domestic law and policy on June 17-18. International law and national security
will be the focus on June 19-20. In addition to informative panels, each module
will include a capstone experience in the form of a simulation that offers
participants an opportunity to collaborate in resolving a regulatory challenge
or national security crisis.
