What is ‘cybersecurity law’? Orin Kerr’s 4 Categories

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:

  1.  The law governing steps that potential or actual victims of Internet intrusions can take in response to potential or actual intrusions
  2. The law governing liability for computer intrusions, both for the perpetrator and the victim
  3. The regulatory law of computer security
  4. 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.
