Challenges Posed By Cybercrimes in the U.S. and Efforts to Combat Cybercriminals
Thursday, March 3, 2011 at the University of Virginia School of Law
Cybercrime. We hear about it everywhere, whether it be Wikileaks “hacktivists” disrupting major corporate websites, China-based cyber-spies cracking into top secret government files, or enterprising thieves who troll the internet and ATM locations for unsuspecting consumers and empty bank accounts into their own pockets. Who are these people? What are their methods for attacking businesses and government?
Join us for our panel discussion titled: “Virtual Crimes – Real Damages: Challenges Posed By Cybercrimes in the U.S. and Efforts to Combat Cybercriminals,” hosted by the Virginia Journal of Law and Technology. This program features experts from the legal community and government who will discuss these threats and answer your questions and is presented in conjunction with the Journal’s publication of a comprehensive primer on cybercrimes in the United States and efforts to combat cybercriminals that includes a fifty-state and federal cyber law and proposed legislation survey written by Fernando Pinguelo and Brad Muller.
Topics of discussion will include profiling the cybercriminal, an analysis of the various methods used by cybercriminals, a discussion of the state and federal responses to cybercrime, and a presentation on “Best Practices” that businesses and governments can adopt to protect confidential client data and avoid potential ethical issues.
Save the date for Thursday, March 3, at the University of Virginia School of Law, 580 Massie Road Charlottesville, Virginia 22903-1738, beginning at 12:30. There will be a lunch provided, then the Panel discussion to be followed by a Networking hour over coffee and snacks. CLE, including ethics, certification pending.
