Program Description:

Our physical world is increasingly supported by a cyberspace infrastructure. This infrastructure enables new business models, enhances communications, makes our personal lives more convenient, and contributes to our national defense. The flip side of this increased reliance, however, is that we are vulnerable to threats to our cyberspace infrastructure. Network outages, data compromised by hackers, propagating viruses, and other incidents affect our lives in ways that range from inconvenient to life-threatening. The cybersecurity policy program examines strategies for societal responses to cybersecurity threats at enterprise, national and global levels. The roles of government, interorganizational alliances, and international cooperatives are explored, as well as legal concepts such as privacy, intellectual property, and civil liberties.
