Cybersecurity Partnerships: A New Era of Public - Private Collaboration

Substantial cyber threats to American companies continue to be at the forefront of national concerns, underscoring the need for effective public/private collaboration.  Yet significant obstacles to such collaboration remain, while threats, as well as potential responses, continue to evolve at a rapid pace.  

This new paper, by CLS Senior Fellow Judi Germano, outlines both the challenges and opportunities facing the government and private companies as they work together to address cybersecurity harms.  The Center on Law and Security will continue to push the boundaries of research and teaching in this emerging and critical area, in the U.S. and internationally.


The Center on Law and Security, in partnership with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at NYU Poly, is pleased to announce a two-year fellowship focused on cybersecurity issues and based at NYU’s campus in Abu Dhabi, UAE.  The fellow will be poised to influence significantly the public dialogue about cybersecurity issues in the MENA/Gulf region, and to become involved in shaping the cybersecurity relationship between the Gulf and partners in North America and Europe. Situated in a strategically vital location and growing in its sophistication and capabilities, Abu Dhabi is the location in which many important developments in cybersecurity will take place in the coming years. As the law and strategy of cybersecurity in the Gulf continue to evolve, the fellow will have the opportunity to lead those discussions and represent NYU while doing so. 

Applications are due by December 15, 2014.
