B587 Information Security Law

Description Information security is a rapidly growing area of law that responds to the need to secure information and information systems (like the Internet) from hacking and other forms of unauthorized access, viruses and denial of service attacks, terrorist attacks, misuse, and accidental destruction or alteration. It is also concerned with the use of the Internet and other information networks by criminals and terrorists to plan illegal activities, and by law enforcement and national security officials to search for those activities. This course will examine these topics and the legal and policy issues they raise, with a particular focus on corporations, not-for-profit organizations, and civilian government agencies. We will look at statutes and cases addressing Fourth Amendment and related issues; civilian and military information security functions (including critical infrastructure protection); industry-specific laws and regulations affecting information security; and a variety of constitutional provisions concerning freedom of expression, association, and religion, privacy, anonymity, and other civil liberties. No technical knowledge is required. The course is designed to help students prepare for legal and non-legal jobs related to information security, cybersecurity, privacy and related fields in corporate, government, and not-for-profit sectors.
