Cybersecurity is at the forefront of issues deeply affecting both public and private sectors. Combating the pervasive threat of cyber-attacks remains a top priority for regulators, policymakers, companies, and the information and communication technology (ICT) industry. Increasingly, however, we see rising tensions between public and private interests in the struggle to define the roles of governments and businesses in cyber risk management. A critical question is how to allocate responsibility for cybersecurity across all sectors.

The Beasley School of Law at Temple University, Japan Campus will explore this issue through a one-day Cybersecurity Conference. The goal of the conference is to examine the sources of tension over who bears responsibility for cybersecurity issues and the relative tradeoffs in pursuing different responsive models, including domestic lawmaking, international norms, industry standards, and technical cooperation. More broadly, the conference will offer a forum for open dialogue among policymakers, academics and industry stakeholders to explore the global community's challenges in handling cybersecurity from a risk management approach. Incorporating multidisciplinary and international points of view, this event should inform and stimulate further thinking by participants in addressing the accountability question for cybersecurity from legal, policy, and corporate perspectives.

About CLE Credit

Attorneys who need credit should bring their state attorney ID number so that they can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Note: Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
