ISACA CSXNA 2017 CYBER LAW
Adler’s topic was Trends in Cyber-Law 2017.
Cyber-Law “governs the digital dissemination of both (digitalized) information and software and legal aspects of information technology more broadly, including information security and electronic commerce. Cyber law is a term that encapsulates the legal issues related to use of the Internet. It is less a distinct field of law than intellectual property or contract law, as it is a domain covering many areas of law and regulation, such as internet access and usage, privacy, freedom of expression, and jurisdiction.”
