Summer Webinar Series: What Law Professors Should Know About Cybersecurity

What Law Professors Should Know About Cybersecurity


Date: 6/10/20

As computers have become increasingly important for both teaching and practicing law, law professors have had to confront cybersecurity concerns ranging from cybercrime and espionage to digital privacy and online extortion. In this webinar, I will discuss both some hands-on practical cybersecurity best practices for law professors related to online communications and teaching, as well as some of the ongoing legal disputes and controversies around cybersecurity topics such as illegal hacking, spyware, and cyber-insurance claims. This webinar will be of particular interest to those who are concerned about online security for their own teaching and scholarship, or who are interested in how the topics they teach may be influenced by or applied to cybersecurity challenges. It assumes no prior technical knowledge and is intended to be accessible to a general audience.
