Regular readers know I have a tremendous amount of respect for Orin Kerr as a — if not the — true scholar on cyber law issues. Kerr recently wrote an article in which he explained his view of cybersecurity law and broke it down into four distinct categories:
- The law governing steps that potential or actual victims of Internet intrusions can take in response to potential or actual intrusions
- The law governing liability for computer intrusions, both for the perpetrator and the victim
- The regulatory law of computer security
- Special issues raised by government network offense and defense
The full article has a nice explanation for each category so go give it a read: What is ‘cybersecurity law’? – The Washington Post.
