Legal Aspects CompSecur&InfoPrivacy

This course provides an overview of the legal rights and liabilities associated with operation and use of computers and information, including the legal and regulatory compliance issues critical for chief information security officers. It discusses the key statutes, regulations, treaties, and court cases (in the United States and abroad) that establish legal rights and responsibilities as to computer security and information privacy. The course also helps students to learn how to reduce their risk of potential legal liability for computer security or information privacy failures, and how to enforce their security and privacy rights against other parties. Case studies and lessons learned from information security failures are used throughout the course. (3)
