Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
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. In it 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, including the USA PATRIOT Act; 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. (Professor Fidler offers a course on cybersecurity law and policy in the spring semester that focuses on national security challenges governments face when addressing crime, terrorism, espionage, and war in cyberspace.)
