LAW 1054: Regulating Cyberthreats
Fall 2018 • Section 21 • CRN 38967

Course Description

Individuals, shadowy criminal organizations, and nation states now have the capacity to harm modern societies through computer attacks (or cyberattacks) and the theft of data (or cyber-exploitation). These new and severe cyberthreats put critical information, infrastructure, and lives at risk. And the threat is growing in scale and intensity. This course will explore how law, including domestic and international law rules on cybercrime and international law rules applicable to cyber warfare, regulates such cyberthreats. It will also analyze current debates over the appropriate forms of international governance of cyberspace and explore how law might be used to regulate the prospects of cyberterrorism.
