Cyber Law


Explores a broad variety of federal statutory, common, and international laws that may impact the information technology professional.Because the overwhelming majority of cyber infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector, the course focus is on those laws that affect the interaction between government and the private sector information technology industry, including the privacy rights so often implicated in modern data storage systems. The seminar starts with a look at cyber law and whether it is really a distinct legal discipline. It then moves into criminal, civil, regulatory, international and common laws with which a current information technology professional may come in contact. Discussion on how public policy and other factors impact the development, implementation, and interpretation of the law. Students will read, interpret and apply legal authorities and theories, a valuable skill for future information technology leaders if they are to stay in compliance with the ever-growing cyber legal framework.
