  • Hacking law is for hackers

    Presentation Title:
    Hacking law is for hackers - how recent changes to CFAA, DMCA, and global policies affect security research

    Presenters:
    Harley Geiger, Senior Director for Public Policy, Rapid7
    Leonard Bailey, Head of the Cybersecurity Unit and Special Counsel for National Security, Department of Justice

    Description:
    What a year for hacker law! 2021-2022 saw major changes to laws that regulate hacking, such as the notorious CFAA, the grotesque DMCA Sec. 1201, and China's grisly "Management of Security Vulnerabilities" regulation. This presentation will walk through each of these developments and etail their implications for security researchers. We'll give background on how these laws have recently changed, identify areas of continued risk for hackers, and suggest concrete ways for the security community to make additional progress in shaping a favorable legal environment. An extended roundtable discussion will follow the presentation.

    Location:
    Policy Department – Roundtable
