With the news full of hackers invading corporate networks and massive breaches of consumer financial and other information, it is no surprise that cybersecurity law is coming into its own as a legal field at the juncture of law and technology. If you want to know more about the roles lawyers play in helping corporations secure data and deal with breaches and other cybersecurity issues, and more about what kind of knowledge lawyers need to do this work, start with "The Emergence of Cybersecurity Law," a new paper published by the Maurer School of Law at Indiana University Bloomington. More reports, cybersecurity-related news, and current developments in this field are available from the American Bar Association's Cybersecurity Legal Task Force. Finally, check out Crossroads Blog: Cyber Security Law & Policy, which supports two courses at Syracuse University College of Law and features law student, law faculty and expert authors.
