Cybersecurity and Information Security Newsletter

August 14, 2020

CLCT is pleased to introduce its newest educational venture, the CLCT Cybersecurity and Information Security Newsletter. William & Mary’s participation in the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI) has allowed CLCT to create this monthly newsletter, which aims to provide legal and technical insights into cyber and information security developments, with the goal of making oft-opaque legal language accessible to a broader audience.

In its inaugural issue, the newsletter discussed several thought-provoking topics: eBay’s alleged port scanning practices, a white paper by Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology exploring the intersection between cybersecurity and artificial intelligence, and Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report. The second issue provided an analysis of the proposed Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act. For more in-depth discussion, you can find Issue 1 here, and Issue 2 here.
