From March 30-April 1, 2017, the Yale Center for Global Legal Challenges and the Yale Office of International Affairs are sponsoring the Yale Cyber Leadership Forum, a two-day program that will focus on bridging the divide between law, technology and business in cybersecurity. The team-taught Forum will be organized around expert panels, talks by keynote speakers and breakout sessions in which we will draw on the expertise of all participants. It will bring together a diverse set of thought leaders, including practitioners from leading law firms, cybersecurity technology experts, policy experts and academics working at the cutting edge of cybersecurity. Topics will include:

  • The technical threat landscape
  • The regulatory and legal landscape, at both the domestic and international levels
  • The cyber divide across different disciplines
  • Making decisions about cyber-security in a world of uncertainty
  • What can be learned from recent cyber-attacks: what to do and what not to do when faced with an attack
  • How to restructure the legal and regulatory landscape to better bridge the divide

The agenda is here, initial speakers list is here, the FAQs are answered here, and the application form is here. Enrollment is limited. Applications are being accepted and processed on a rolling basis. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2017.
