Cyber Security and the Law:
Addressing Compliance, Complexity, and Confusion

Federal-Level Cyber Security Compliance
Tuesday, April 26

CIP Program at GMU  Cyber Security Industry Alliance

 The Cyber Security Industry Alliance and The Critical Infrastructure Protection Program at George Mason University School of Law present a three-part symposium on the emerging landscape of cyber security legislation and compliance.  The frequency and complexity of legislation surrounding cyber security has exploded in the past two years.  As our lives and commerce become increasingly dependent on IT systems, the interaction of existing laws and proposed legislation becomes more and more complex.  This symposium series explores the complex emerging framework of multi-level legal and technology compliance requirements.

Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and the Telecommunications Act of 1996 were all originally passed to deal with non-cyber security issues — yet each affects how data is transmitted, processed and compiled. The development of case law interpreting these statutes is also likely to determine how broadly federal law impacts cyber security. This session explores the federal landscape and the potential trajectory of judicial interpretation.

Invited speakers include: Randy Sabett, head of the Cybercrime practice at Cooley Godward

Location: The meeting will be held at Holland and Knight LLP, 2099 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W., Washington DC 20006
