A definitive guide to cybersecurity law Expanding on the author’s experience as a cybersecurity lawyer and law professor, Cybersecurity Law is the definitive guide to cybersecurity law, with an in-depth analysis of U.S. and international laws that apply to data security, data breaches, sensitive information safeguarding, law enforcement surveillance, cybercriminal combat, privacy, and many other cybersecurity issues. Written in an accessible manner, the book provides real-world examples and case studies to help readers understand the practical applications of the presented material. The book begins by outlining the legal requirements for data security, which synthesizes the Federal Trade Commission’s cybersecurity cases in order to provide the background of the FTC’s views on data security. The book also examines data security requirements imposed by a growing number of state legislatures and private litigation arising from data breaches. Anti-hacking laws, such as the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, Economic Espionage Act, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and how companies are able to fight cybercriminals while ensuring compliance with the U.S. Constitution and statutes are discussed thoroughly. Featuring an overview of the laws that allow coordination between the public and private sectors as well as the tools that regulators have developed to allow a limited amount of collaboration, this book also: • Addresses current U.S. and international laws, regulations, and court opinions that define the field of cybersecurity including the security of sensitive information, such as financial data and health information • Discusses the cybersecurity requirements of the largest U.S. trading partners in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, and specifically addresses how these requirements are similar to (and differ from) those in the U.S. • Provides a compilation of many of the most important cybersecurity statutes and regulations • Emphasizes the compliance obligations of companies with in-depth analysis of crucial U.S. and international laws that apply to cybersecurity issues • Examines government surveillance laws and privacy laws that affect cybersecurity as well as each of the data breach notification laws in 47 states and the District of Columbia • Includes numerous case studies and examples throughout to aid in classroom use and to help readers better understand the presented material • Supplemented with a companion website that features in-class discussion questions and timely and recent updates on recent legislative developments as well as information on interesting cases on relevant and significant topics Cybersecurity Law is appropriate as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate-level courses in cybersecurity, cybersecurity law, cyber operations, management-oriented information technology (IT), and computer science. This book is also an ideal reference for lawyers, IT professionals, government personnel, business managers, IT management personnel, auditors, and cybersecurity insurance providers. JEFF KOSSEFF is Assistant Professor of Cybersecurity Law at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

In today’s litigious business world, cyber-related matters could land you in court. As a computer security professional, you are protecting your data, but are you protecting your company? While you know industry standards and regulations, you may not be a legal expert. Fortunately, in a few hours of reading, rather than months of classroom study, Tari Schreider’s The Manager’s Guide to Cybersecurity Law: Essentials for Today’s Business, lets you integrate legal issues into your security program. Tari Schreider, a board-certified information security practitioner with a criminal justice administration background, has written a much-needed book that bridges the gap between cybersecurity programs and cybersecurity law. He says, “My nearly 40 years in the fields of cybersecurity, risk management, and disaster recovery have taught me some immutable truths. One of these truths is that failure to consider the law when developing a cybersecurity program results in a protective façade or false sense of security.” In a friendly style, offering real-world business examples from his own experience supported by a wealth of court cases, Schreider covers the range of practical information you will need as you explore – and prepare to apply – cybersecurity law. His practical, easy-to-understand explanations help you to: Understand your legal duty to act reasonably and responsibly to protect assets and information. Identify which cybersecurity laws have the potential to impact your cybersecurity program. Upgrade cybersecurity policies to comply with state, federal, and regulatory statutes. Communicate effectively about cybersecurity law with corporate legal department and counsel. Understand the implications of emerging legislation for your cybersecurity program. Know how to avoid losing a cybersecurity court case on procedure – and develop strategies to handle a dispute out of court. Develop an international view of cybersecurity and data privacy – and international legal frameworks. Schreider takes you beyond security standards and regulatory controls to ensure that your current or future cybersecurity program complies with all laws and legal jurisdictions. Hundreds of citations and references allow you to dig deeper as you explore specific topics relevant to your organization or your studies. This book needs to be required reading before your next discussion with your corporate legal department.

This book discusses the legal and regulatory aspects of cybersecurity, examining the international, regional, and national regulatory responses to cybersecurity. The book particularly examines the response of the United Nations and several international organizations to cybersecurity. It provides an analysis of the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime, the Commonwealth Model Law on Computer and Computer Related Crime, the Draft International Convention to Enhance Protection from Cybercrime and Terrorism, and the Draft Code on Peace and Security in Cyberspace. The book further examines policy and regulatory responses to cybersecurity in the US, the UK, Singapore, India, China, and Russia. It also looks at the African Union's regulatory response to cybersecurity and renders an analysis of the Draft African Union Convention on the Establishment of a Credible Legal Framework for Cybersecurity in Africa. The book considers the development of cybersecurity initiatives by the Economic Community of West African States, the Southern African Development Community, and the East African Community, and further provides an analysis of national responses to cybersecurity in South Africa, Botswana, Mauritius, Senegal, Kenya, Ghana, and Nigeria. It also examines efforts to develop policy and regulatory frameworks for cybersecurity in 16 other African countries (Algeria, Angola, Cameroon, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gambia Lesotho, Morocco, Namibia, Niger, Seychelles, Swaziland, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, and Zambia). Nigeria is used as a case study to examine the peculiar causes of cyber-insecurity and the challenges that hinder the regulation of cybersecurity in African states, as well as the implications of poor cybersecurity governance on national security, economic development, international relations, human security, and human rights. The book suggests several policy and regulatory strategies to enhance cybersecurity in Africa and the global information society with emphasis on the collective responsibility of all states in preventing trans-boundary cyber harm and promoting global cybersecurity. It will be useful to policy makers, regulators, researchers, lawyers, IT professionals, law students, and any person interested in seeking a general understanding of cybersecurity governance in developed and developing countries.òò

Cyber Security: Law and Guidance

Cyber security is concerned with both the security of cyber space and the security of entities that use or rely on cyber space such as the internet and the world-wide web. Entities that use cyber space need to be cyber secure. However, the regulatory reform process for cyber security in the EU, the US and elsewhere has been very selective about the categories of entities that should carry a statutory duty to be cyber secure. Cyber Security: Law and Guidance provides an overview of the key legal developments for cyber security in England and Wales, focusing on the proposed NIS Directive and related legal instruments, including those for data protection and payment services. It also provides insights into how the law is developed outside of regulatory frameworks, by reference to the "consensus of professional opinion" on cyber security, case law and the role of professional and industry standards for security. Suggestions are made on how to build a "defensive shield" to protect an organisation from regulatory actions and litigation. With cyber security law destined to become heavily contentious, legal privilege will be an advantage.

International Cybersecurity and Privacy Law in Practice

International Cybersecurity and Privacy Law in Practice balances privacy and cybersecurity legal knowledge with technical knowledge and business acumen needed to provide adequate representation and consultation both within an organization, such as a government entity or business, and when advising these organizations as external counsel. Although organizations collect information, including personal data, in increasing volume, they often struggle to identify privacy laws applicable to complex, multinational technology implementations. Jurisdictions worldwide now include specific cybersecurity obligations in privacy laws and have passed stand-alone cybersecurity laws. To advise on these compliance matters, attorneys must understand both the law and the technology to which it applies. This book provides an innovative, in-depth survey and analysis of international information privacy and cybersecurity laws worldwide, an introduction to cybersecurity technology, and a detailed guide on organizational practices to protect an organization's interests and anticipate future compliance developments. It also introduces cybersecurity industry standards, developing cybersecurity legal developments, and international data localization laws. What's in this book: This book explores international information privacy laws applicable to private and public organizations, including employment and marketing-related compliance requirements and industry-specific guidance. It introduces a legal approach based on industry best practices to creating and managing an effective cybersecurity and privacy program that includes the following and more: prompt, secure ways to identify threats, manage vulnerabilities, and respond to "incidents"; defining the accountability of the "data controller" within an organization; roles of transparency and consent; privacy notice as contract; rights of revocation, erasure, and correction; de-identification and anonymization procedures; records retention; and data localization. Regulations and applicable "soft law" will be explored in detail for a wide variety of jurisdictions, including an introduction to the European Union's Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), China's Cybersecurity Law, the OECD and APEC Guidelines, the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and many other national and regional instruments. How this will help you: This book is an indispensable resource for attorneys who must advise on strategic implementation of new technologies, advise on the impact of certain laws to the enterprise, interpret complex cybersecurity and privacy contractual language, and participate in incident response and data breach activities. It will also be of value to other practitioners from a broader perspective, such as compliance and security personnel, who need a reference exploring privacy and data protection laws and their connection with security technologies.

This interdisciplinary approach is an exemplar of how strategies from different disciplines as well as the private and public sectors may cross-pollinate to enhance cybersecurity. Case studies and examples illustrate what is at stake and identify best practices. The book discusses technical issues of Internet governance and cybersecurity while presenting the material in an informal, straightforward manner. The book is designed to inform readers about the interplay of Internet governance and cybersecurity and the potential of polycentric regulation to help foster cyber peace.

Cyber Law and Cyber Security in Developing and Emerging Economies

This timely and important book illuminates the impact of cyber law on the growth and development of emerging and developing economies. Using a strong theoretical framework firmly grounded in resource-based and technology diffusion literature, the authors convey a subtle understanding of the ways public and private sector entities in developing and emerging countries adopt cyber space processes. This book reveals that the diffusion of cyber activities in developing and emerging economies is relatively low, with the main stumbling blocks resting in regulatory, cultural, and social factors. The authors argue that cyber crimes constitute a prime obstacle to the diffusion of e-commence and e-governments in developing economies, and governments have an important role in developing control mechanisms in the form of laws. However, setting appropriate policies and complementary services, particularly those affecting the telecommunications sector and other infrastructure, human capital and the investment environment, severely constrains Internet access. Using both strategic and operational perspectives, the authors discuss the concrete experience of constructing and implementing cyber laws and cyber security measures in developing and emerging countries, and analyse their content and appropriateness. Professionals, academics, students, and policymakers working in the area of cyber space, e-commerce and economic development, and United Nations entities working closely with the Millennium Development Goals, will find this book an invaluable reference.

"...excellent for use as a text in information assurance orcyber-security courses...I strongly advocate thatprofessors...examine this book with the intention of using it intheir programs." (Computing Reviews.com, March 22, 2007) "The book is written as a student textbook, but it should beequally valuable for current practitioners...this book is a veryworthwhile investment." (Homeland Security Watch, August 17,2006) While the emphasis is on the development of policies that lead tosuccessful prevention of terrorist attacks on the nation’sinfrastructure, this book is the first scientific study of criticalinfrastructures and their protection. The book models thenation’s most valuable physical assets and infrastructuresectors as networks of nodes and links. It then analyzes thenetwork to identify vulnerabilities and risks in the sectorcombining network science, complexity theory, modeling andsimulation, and risk analysis. The most critical components become the focus of deeper analysisand protection. This approach reduces the complex problem ofprotecting water supplies, energy pipelines, telecommunicationstations, Internet and Web networks, and power grids to a muchsimpler problem of protecting a few critical nodes. The new editionincorporates a broader selection of ideas and sectors and moves themathematical topics into several appendices.
