  • Cybersecurity in the Classroom: Bridging the Gap Between Computer Access and Online Safety

    Malecki, Andrew (ValpoScholar, 2018-01-28)
    According to ISACA, there will be a global shortage of 2 million cybersecurity professionals worldwide by 2019. Additionally, according to Experian Data Breach Resolution, as much as 80% of all network breaches can be traced to employee negligence. These problems will not solve themselves, and they likewise won’t improve without drastic action. An effort needs to be made to help direct interested and qualified individuals to the field of cybersecurity to move toward closing this gap. Moreover, steps need to be made to better inform the public of general safety measures while online, including the safeguarding of sensitive information. A large issue with solving the problems at hand is that there seems to be no comprehensive curriculum for cybersecurity education to teach these basic principles. In my paper, I review and compare several after- and in-school programs that attempt to address this problem. I’ve also interviewed teachers from Montgomery County Public Schools, a relatively ethnically diverse school district outside of Washington, D.C. These issues need to be addressed, and while private organizations and local schools are attempting to tackle the problem, wider action may need to be taken at a national level to come to a resolution.
  • Conceptualizing Copyright Enforcement and Management in the Digital Age Through Two Models: The Right-Holder-Centric Model and Cooperative Model

    Sun, Yang (Digital Repository @ Maurer Law, 2014-11-01)
    This dissertation focuses on the issues of copyright enforcement and management. Especially, the research looks into how the digital technology reshapes the general perceptions and landscape of the copyright system in terms of online enforcement and management. Stepping into the digital age, the interaction between copyright holders and other parties, including online users and the ISPs, establishes two coexisting models—the right-holder-centric model and the cooperative model. Therefore, the dissertation analyzes which model is more appropriate and efficient with respect to online copyright enforcement and management. As a matter of fact, the coexistences of two models provides copyright holders and other parties with multiple options in terms of copyright enforcement and management. Each model has distinctive features and mechanism, and builds upon different perceptions and foundations. The idea that one model can replace the other does not support the analysis in this dissertation because each model covers strengths and weaknesses. Consequently, each model should be the supplementary option to the other according to specific circumstances. To sum up, the two models should works as a general entity to promote the copyright enforcement and management.

  • Diálogos em direito:: uma abordagem luso-brasileira sobre o direito autoral da fotografia na era digital

    Dias Gonçalves, Rafaella (2017)
    This article analyzes the protection of the intellectual work of photography and the photographer's copyright, through the solutions found in the comparative study of the Portuguese Copyright and Related Rights Code and in the Brazilian copyright law, as well as in the jurisprudential decisions of its respective Courts. Although Brazilian and Portuguese copyright law have several similarities, it was verified - at the level of greater distinction - that photography is an intellectual work for all purposes in Brazilian law, however in Portuguese coding, to be considered a work, photography must be evaluated through the criteria of intellectual creation and originality, in court. We point to this legal issue as a problem, insofar as photography is the capture of the "photographic look", endowed with personality and subjectivity, and it is up to the photographer to have the protection of any and all records, regardless of pre-established criteria, as already occurs in Brazil.
