NEW YORK, NY, October 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Journal of Law and Cyber Warfare ("JLCW") conducted a panel discussion in Washington D.C. on September 17 2013 at a caucus event sponsored by Congressman Robert E. Andrews. ---
The event coincides with JLCW's publication of its most recent issue (Vol. II, Issue 1), and focused on problems at the intersection of national and corporate Cyber Security, moderated by Daniel B. Garrie, JLCW's Editor in Chief. Attendees included senior members of United States CYBERCOM, and industry representatives. On the panel were James A. Dever, who has worked with the Department of Homeland Security and currently is a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Army Reserves as well as General Counsel of Center Mass, LLC, a government contracting firm; Noah Bledstein, formerly Chief of Cyber Law with the 24th Air Force, Lackland Air Force Base, TX and attorney with the US Air Force as well as an Operational Law Attorney with the Joint Functional Component Command Network Warfare; and Professor Eric Talbot Jensen, Associate Professor of Law at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, and author of the case book "Law of Armed Conflict: An Operational Approach," as well as numerous scholarly articles addressing issues around cyber conflict.
The panel discussed problems at the intersection of national and corporate cyber security and addressed possible legal and regulatory solutions to these problems, including one presented in the foreword of the most recent JLCW issue, co-authored by JLCW editors Daniel B. Garrie and Siddartha Rao, and Chris Colvin, founding partner of intellectual property firm Colvin Hudnell LLP. That JLCW article also presented a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind survey on cyber security using data from hundreds of companies around the world. That survey found that there are shockingly few legal, regulatory, or private data-security standards and practices that have emerged to protect companies' enormously valuable digital assets, even as cybercrime has grown tremendously in sophistication and frequency.
