» 2016 Symposium

Cyber Wars: Navigating Responsibilities for the Public and Private Sector 

Friday, January 29, 2016
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Kennedy Hall, Room 237

Presented by the Chapman Law Review

Chapman University is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider and certifies that this activity has been approved for MCLE credit in the amount of 6 units of MCLE credit (including 1.5 units of special MCLE-ethics credit).

Cybersecurity has become a critical national security and corporate security problem in the last fifteen years. Examples include hackings of the Pentagon, SONY, Target, JPMorgan Chase, Home Depot, various universities, and hospitals. A lively debate is now raging in Congress, academia, and in the corporate world over what steps should be taken. Attorneys are at the forefront of the problem in advising clients and securing confidential information. The 2016 Chapman Law Review Symposium will seek to advance the discussion of cybersecurity in three ways: (1) by expanding the discussion on the U.S. Government’s regulation of the cyber sphere; (2) by expanding the debate on the recent corporate hackings and what can be done to prevent future hackings from occurring; and (3) by expanding the dialog on the attorney’s changing ethical roles in an increasingly cyber world.
