Cyberlaw and governance in an age of cyber-attacks and cybercrime

By its boundless nature, the Internet creates legal challenges regarding issues such as jurisdiction and state sovereignty. Normally every sovereign nation would create its own legislation, which is applied within its governing jurisdiction. However, since cyber-space has no physical borders, therefore no jurisdictional regulation, it becomes difficult to govern, nationally and internationally. Further to this, the recent surge in privacy legislation e.g. GDPR, has created another challenge concerning the right to monitor online activity and to gather user information. Although most legislation regarding cyber-space falls within the ambit of privacy or criminal law, this still presents challenges for organisations who are victims of international or state-backed cyber-attacks. These challenges require effective legal regulation to address cybersecurity, its technical and social complexities, including legislative frameworks together with collaboration with the global communities, the private sector, professional educational and capacity building. The presentation will discuss the legal challenges related to cyber-security, provide an overview of international legal frameworks and guidelines, and the implications for organisations, as cyber-security is becoming a major concern as new technology models, combined with a greater dependency on technology are driving changes in companies approach to security in a new way.
