Spring 2018 - 60827 - PA 388K – Advanced Topics in Public Policy
Seminar: Technology/Law/Policy Issues
Law is the home department.
This interdisciplinary 3-credit writing seminar will dive deep into cutting-edge cybersecurity issues at the intersection of technology, law, and public policy, such as the controversies associated with the “going dark” encryption dispute or proposals to allow “hackback” in response to unauthorized access. The course is intended to bring together graduate students from law, computer science, engineering, and public affairs. Preference will be given to those who have taken one of the foundational fall cybersecurity courses (Cybersecurity Foundations: An Introduction to the Technology for Law and Policy, or Cybersecurity Foundations: An Introduction to Law and Policy), though other students may be accepted upon application. Instructors: Matt Tait and Bobby Chesney.
