  • A Comparative Study of Domestic Laws Constraining Private Sector Active Defense Measures in Cyberspace

    Corcoran, Brian D. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2019-05-01)
    The U.S. private sector is under attack in cyberspace. An increasingly mainstream national security argument calls for amending U.S. law to permit private sector actors, either by themselves or under government supervision, to take so-called モactive defenseヤ measuresラtechnical measures that fall in the grey zone between passive network defenses and aggressive offense. This essay identifies and surveys the relevant laws of twenty countries with large and technologically innovative private sectors. As the U.S. government considers how best to protect U.S. private industry, this \"map\" informs the options on the table for a holistic review and response to the problem.

  • Facebook: Reconstructing Communication And Decostructing Privacy Law?

    Piskopani, Anna-Maria; Mitrou, Lilian (AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), 2009-01-01)
    The exponential growth of Facebook during the last year, was followed by a vital public discourse and often an alert with regard to the impacts of this popular SNS on communicational and behavioural attitudes and users’ rights. In this Paper we focus on privacy issues relating to Facebook. We attempt to define the “phenomenon Facebook” as a social and communicational ecosystem in the context of Web 2.0. In this perspective we discuss the trust relationships evolved in the Facebook communities to the extent that they affect the perceptions and expectations of privacy. We refer to the privacy issues, focusing on shortcomings of the Facebook privacy policy and practices, on regulatory responses and the problems relating to consent and contract as privacy gatekeepers in SNSs. Finally, we try to identify how SNSs and Facebook pose new challenges to privacy and data protection law.

  • Strategic Electronic Government Procurement : Strategic Planning Guide

    Inter-American Development Bank; Asian Development Bank; World Bank (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2004-06)
    Many countries have discovered that the
 transition to e-government, and all the benefits that this
 entails, can require the extensive re-engineering of public
 sector management, service design and delivery, legislation
 and even community expectations. E-government is a reform
 program which exploits the potential of online technology,
 but is not delivered merely through the design, acquisition
 and application of this technology. Like other parts of an
 e-government program, implementing e-GP is a reform
 strategy, and like any reform strategy, will be developed,
 customized and owned by each jurisdiction if it is to
 succeed. An e-GP implementation strategy is sensitive to all
 of the elements that distinguish one jurisdiction from
 another including management and leadership culture,
 regulations, skills and expertise, etcetera. This guide is
 intended to provide an awareness of the issues and critical
 success factors that will generally be found in any
 successful e-GP strategy and is aimed at assisting
 jurisdictions and organizations develop their own
 implementation strategy for this sensitive and high value
 activity of government.
