July 26, 2017 - The article, "International Law Playing Cybersecurity Catch-Up (Part Two of Two)," by Seth D. Rothman and Andreas S. Baum was published in The Cybersecurity Law Report.
Cybersecurity is a pressing concern for nation states around the globe, as well as for the private and public entities within them. International law has been slow to keep pace and is only just starting to specifically address cybersecurity. To fill the void, governments have been trying to apply existing laws to cover cybersecurity, specifically in the areas of (1) cyberwarfare; (2) laws relating to cyber crimes; and (3) laws that regulate business. This is a challenge, especially as the threats and technology continue to evolve. And within certain jurisdictions, the E.U., for example, transformative legislation covering privacy and security is being implemented.
