Online Privacy and Internet Law
QST LA 484
This course explores online privacy regulation and law, cybersecurity law, and Internet regulation. The goal is not to create Internet regulatory attorneys, but to give students a solid awareness of the Internet privacy regulation and the pitfalls of not being aware of those regulations. Students will also learn how to create crisis strategies for dealing with a major breach. During the course, we will read privacy regulations and privacy orders and study the significant FTC privacy and breach cases. We will have guest speakers that will explain real-life, first-hand experiences with privacy and cybersecurity breaches, how a real crisis was handled, and what could have been done to prevent the breach and improve on the response. By the end of this course, students will understand Internet regulation and its significance for businesses using the Internet.
