The Program on Economics & Privacy (PEP) at Antonin Scalia Law School, will host a scholars conference on the economics of digital information policy on April 28, 2017. The conference will be open to the public.
This conference will focus on cybersecurity issues facing actors at the state, local, and regional level – including state and local government, local and federal law enforcement (including military and intelligence), firms and entrepreneurs, legal and security practitioners, individuals, and groups representing various public interest concerns. This topic will be construed broadly – many security issues of interest at the national level are also of interest at the subnational level.
As the weather finally begins to look like summer here along the coast, the University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth School of Law wishes to invite you to our Third Annual Junior Faculty Scholarship Exchange.
Cybersecurity has become a critical national security and corporate security problem in the last fifteen years. Examples include hackings of the Pentagon, SONY, Target, JPMorgan Chase, Home Depot, various universities, and hospitals. A lively debate is now raging in Congress, academia, and in the corporate world over what steps should be taken. Attorneys are at the forefront of the problem in advising clients and securing confidential information. What duties do attorneys and corporations have to prevent a cyberattack? What duties do attorneys and corporations owe to their clientele?
