RWU Tackles Growing Challenge of Cybersecurity in Summer Conference

Posted by David Logan on 05/30/2013 at 03:04 PM

Cybersecurity is the next frontier for clients in finance, health care, and energy, as well as for law enforcement and national security.  Cybercrime is on the rise – from the White House to the Pentagon, from America’s biggest corporations and health-care organizations to the small business next door. 

 

Cyber is increasingly important, and only a few experts and practitioners have a working knowledge of how cyber interacts with law, policy, and regulation. In an innovative program open not just to law students, but also to lawyers, business people, and public servants, RWU presents “Cyber Threats and Cyber Realities” June 17-20. 

Jointly sponsored by RWU’s School of Law and School of Justice Studies, Cyber Threats and Cyber Realties will offer an interactive forum with nationally known experts and practitioners in cyber law, policy, and regulation. In addition to lively and informative panel discussions, the conference will offer simulations that allow participants to collaborate in resolving a regulatory challenge or national security crisis.
