Follow the Money: Fighting Cybercrime in the Digital Underworld

“Cybercrime is a business. While some hackers engage in cyberattacks to steal state secrets or to engage in sabotage for political purposes, a significant portion of the attacks that plague American companies and individuals are motivated by money.  Whether the perpetrators are Eastern European organized crime groups or actors linked to the Chinese military in ways that may be obscure, the goal is often to turn a profit.  Deterring these actors means not only trying to keep them out of our systems and networks in the first place, but also making it as difficult as possible for them to raise, move, store, and use funds. This event will shed light on ways that the government and private sector are working to disrupt the flow of funds that powers the digital underground.”

Terrorists’ Use of Social Media: The Legal and Policy Landscape

“There is presently significant uncertainty in the legal regime governing circumstances in which platform providers can be compelled to take down content, or in which they can be held civilly liable for their failure to do so. While the general legal landscape is thick, the precise application to content hosted on social media platforms is not clear. Some of the specific questions this panel will consider include:

  • Can platform providers be held civilly liable for hosting terrorist-linked content on their services?
  • Can the government use the same software that commercial advertising firms use to follow the behavior of potential ISIS recruits as they consume material available on public platforms like YouTube and Twitter?
  • What should social media companies do with regard to terrorist-linked content, and to what incentives to they respond when considering these questions?

We are pleased to offer up to 1.5 credits of CLE in the Areas of Professional Practice at this event.”
