Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection, Cybersecurity Conference, and Resources

Cyber Law is “the area of law dealing with the use of computers and the Internet and the exchange of communications and information thereon, including related issues concerning such communications and information as the protection of intellectual property rights, freedom of speech, and public access to information” ( (citing Webster’s New World Law Dictionary)).

Cybersecurity, privacy, and information management raise a constellation of critical issues facing every business, governmental/national security, health delivery, retail, and educational entity. Insecure and poorly managed information systems pose significant risks to critical assets and can result in significant legal liability and reputational injuries.  

The Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection takes a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary approach to address privacy and cyber-risk management concerns. Through innovative programming, training and practical research, the Center:

  • Builds partnerships bridging organizational, professional and political divisions
  • Integrates technical, legal, and business perspectives
  • Creates dialogue between government agencies and regulated entities
  • Promotes creative legal, technical, managerial and regulatory approaches to security and privacy

The Center provides opportunities for law students to equip themselves via coursework, externships, and research for the myriad new permanent positions developing in this field.

The Center is hosting the 2020 Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection Conference 2020 online this September.
