DayZero: Cybersecurity Law and Policy
DayZero dives deep in cybersecurity vulnerabilities, and the crime, espionage, and warfare taking place on networked computers. We look at legislation, practice, and litigation over how to keep our networks and critical infrastructure secure; new and emerging threats and how the policy process responds to them; the relationship between cybersecurity other security goods; and cybersecurity in American relations with foreign adversaries and allies.
