The rise of sophisticated cyber threats means that the task of managing cyber risks, once the near-exclusive realm of IT professionals, is now also borne by attorneys, senior executives, and directors. Cybersecurity: A Practical Guide to the Law of Cyber Risk provides the practical steps that can be taken to help your clients understand and mitigate today’s cyber risk and to build the most resilient response capabilities possible.
Cybersecurity: A Practical Guide to the Law of Cyber Risk provides a comprehensive discussion of the complex quilt of federal and state statutes, Executive Orders, regulations, contractual norms, and ambiguous tort duties that can apply to this crucial new area of the law. For example, it describes in detail:The leading regulatory role the Federal Trade Commission has played, acting on its authority to regulate unfair or deceptive trade practices;The guidance issued by the SEC interpreting existing disclosure rules to require registrants to disclose cybersecurity risks under certain circumstances;The varying roles of other regulators in sector-specific regulation, such as healthcare, energy, and transportation; andThe impact of preexisting statutes, such as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, on current cybersecurity issues.

Massive amounts of data on human beings can now be analyzed. Pragmatic purposes abound, including selling goods and services, winning political campaigns, and identifying possible terrorists. Yet 'big data' can also be harnessed to serve the public good: scientists can use big data to do research that improves the lives of human beings, improves government services, and reduces taxpayer costs. In order to achieve this goal, researchers must have access to this data – raising important privacy questions. What are the ethical and legal requirements? What are the rules of engagement? What are the best ways to provide access while also protecting confidentiality? Are there reasonable mechanisms to compensate citizens for privacy loss? The goal of this book is to answer some of these questions. The book's authors paint an intellectual landscape that includes legal, economic, and statistical frameworks. The authors also identify new practical approaches that simultaneously maximize the utility of data access while minimizing information risk.

The threats to privacy are well known: the National Security Agency tracks our phone calls; Google records where we go online and how we set our thermostats; Facebook changes our privacy settings when it wishes; Target gets hacked and loses control of our credit card information; our medical records are available for sale to strangers; our children are fingerprinted and their every test score saved for posterity; and small robots patrol our schoolyards and drones may soon fill our skies.
The contributors to this anthology don’t simply describe these problems or warn about the loss of privacythey propose solutions. They look closely at business practices, public policy, and technology design, and ask, Should this continue? Is there a better approach?” They take seriously the dictum of Thomas Edison: What one creates with his hand, he should control with his head.” It’s a new approach to the privacy debate, one that assumes privacy is worth protecting, that there are solutions to be found, and that the future is not yet known. This volume will be an essential reference for policy makers and researchers, journalists and scholars, and others looking for answers to one of the biggest challenges of our modern day. The premise is clear: there’s a problem—let’s find a solution.

Much of what constitutes Big Data is information about us. Through our online activities, we leave an easy-to-follow trail of digital footprints that reveal who we are, what we buy, where we go, and much more. This eye-opening book explores the raging privacy debate over the use of personal data, with one undeniable conclusion: once data's been collected, we have absolutely no control over who uses it or how it is used.
Personal data is the hottest commodity on the market today—truly more valuable than gold. We are the asset that every company, industry, non-profit, and government wants. Privacy and Big Data introduces you to the players in the personal data game, and explains the stark differences in how the U.S., Europe, and the rest of the world approach the privacy issue.
