news from Georgetown's Cybersecurity Law Institute
The Georgetown Cybersecurity Law Institute, which met May 20 and 21, offered lawyers continuing education in the rapidly evolving field of cybersecurity law. Among the themes the conference addressed were centrality of risk management to protecting the enterprise, the coming importance (and current immaturity) of insurance markets and their legal environment, the ways in which new technology (particularly that surrounding the Internet-of-things and strong artificial intelligence) will disrupt a surprising range of human institutions and modes of organization, the relationship between corporations and law enforcement (where trust and benefit need to be enhanced), the impermissibility (and inadvisability) of "hacking back," and the new but increasingly important expectation that lawyers be technically literate. Stories about the conference and documents relevant to its discussions are linked below. A full account of the proceedings appears on the CyberWire site.
