Overview

Cybersecurity is often thought to involve protecting one’s identity and sensitive information when online, but this is not nearly the full extent of the risk. Critical information and infrastructure can be vulnerable to attack by malicious actors and when compromised, loss of critical data; publication of sensitive materials; damage or destruction of systems, or other severe consequences could follow.

This course investigates cybercrime in its many guises including in the context of prevention and transnational cooperation, and also focuses on the prosecution of cybercrime. Prosecution often involves bringing together multiple people across many departments and multiple jurisdictions which can pose a variety of challenges. Drawing from the U.S. policy, legislative, institutional and prosecutorial experience, this seminar will integrate the selected topics through lectures, case studies and class discussion. Participants will also engage in in-depth study of cybercrime investigation and prosecution while developing their skills.

The covered material will be of interest to policy makers, regulators, business leaders, government officials, prosecutors, criminal justice personnel, judges, attorneys, and academics, specifically in developing economies where cybercrime is emerging or may pose a particular threat.
