    by Rita S. Heims on February 26, 2015

    My good friend Jon Stanley invited me to speak on his panel at RSAC 2015. This will be my first time at the conference, let alone as a speaker. Over the past two decades as a lawyer and law professor, I’ve been to plenty of conferences: grand ones organized by professional membership associations with fancy keynotes speakers and high production value; little academic ones where only the twenty…

  • Working With Government: Legal Authority and Law

    by Todd Inskeep on February 18, 2015

    This is the third post in a multi-part series. You can read the first and second parts here. A second major aspect of the current National Cyber Security call for action considers the legal authority to investigate and prosecute cyber-crimes.

  • Working With Government: Information Sharing Laws

    This is the second post in a multi-part series. The first post is here. Information sharing is one major aspect of the current calls for action on National Cyber Security issues. As I noted earlier, lawers, company executives, government officials and others have differing views on the need for new laws regarding information sharing. Information sharing has been discussed in the context of the…

  • State of the Union Puts Cybersecurity on National Agenda

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on January 21, 2015

    Buried among the slew of national issues such as equal pay, immigration reform, climate change and Ebola, President Barack Obama spent a few seconds talking about net neutrality and cybersecurity in his State of the Union speech Tuesday evening. While it's nice to see security on the general agenda, it's still too early to know the government's plans. The full paragraph from the State of the Union…

  • A Morality Tale: The Good and Bad of DDoS Attacks, and What to Do About Them

    It's 4:55 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, and your phone rings. You're a CISO of a large company selling products online. It's your lead SOC analyst calling with a big problem. The moment that you've successfully avoided for your tenure so far has finally arrived: web-facing applications are slowing to a crawl, and customers are calling and complaining. You are under attack—it’s a distributed…

    by John Linkous on October 20, 2014

    The European Court of Justice's ruling in May said that individuals have the "right to be forgotten" could fundamentally change Internet privacy and security. The case involved a Spanish attorney, Mario Costeja González, who was troubled that public notices were being posted in his local newspaper regarding the repossession and auction of his home.

    by John Linkous on October 9, 2014

    The next time you turn on the faucet in your home, ask yourself: "How do I know this water is safe?"

Technology is making these systems…

    by John Linkous on October 7, 2014

    After a corporation discovers a data breach, there is a flurry of law enforcement activity. From the FBI, Department of the Treasury, and Secret Service to state and local police, a cadre of law enforcement officials will be part of the investigation into how the data breach occurred, how detection technologies could have been more effective, and who was criminally responsible. One of the hardest…
