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

International-Level Cyber Security Compliance
Thursday, May 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.

If state and federal law appear inconsistent, federal and international law are even more so.  Tonight's session will set forth the existing pieces of the international cyber security puzzle, identifying places where diplomacy and concerted effort may be able to harmonize legal issues across borders. 

Invited speakers include: 

  • Jody Westby, Chair of the ABA's International Cybercrime Project
  • Drew Arena, Verizon Communications
  • Richard Beaird, Department of State
  • Jonathan Winer, Alston and Bird, LLP
  • Betty Shave, Department of Justice

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