The certificate explores the vulnerabilities that arise from the use of cyberspace. The certificate coursework explores how the United States and the many other nations are responding to those vulnerabilities and how to analyze the policy and legal frameworks that are developing.

Students will examine issues relating to the organization of the Internet and cyberspace to understand how both governmental entities, and private parties, may – and do – respond to cyber threats under the current legal and policy frameworks. Students will be introduced to policy and legal concepts relating to the private sector and civilian government engagement in cyberspace. The program will also include an examination of the application of traditional laws of armed conflict to the new cyber domain.

Credits earned in the Certificate in Cybersecurity, Law & Policy program may not be transferred to the MS in National Security Management.
