Paul Flanagan, assistant professor of law and director of the Privacy, Cybersecurity and Compliance program, co-authored Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Law: Risks and Mitigation with James Goepel, James Ottavio Castagnera, Bridget Mead, JD ’20, and Jared Miller, JD ’21. Other Kline Law contributors include Ben Walsh, JD ’19, Yeshesvini Chandar, JD ’21, and 3L Heath Summers, all of whom wrote chapters. The book was published by LexisNexis on June 21, 2021.
The book seeks to build a bridge across the gap that exists between legal requirements, data privacy and cybersecurity threats and the implementation of data privacy and cybersecurity strategies. The first part of the book includes guidance on how to implement comprehensive enterprise risk management and compliance programs, which reduce organizational risk and legal liability. The second half explores privacy and cybersecurity regimes in specific Asian states as well as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
“I hope that this book will give companies, students and people in the privacy, cybersecurity and compliance space a glimpse of the growing need to break down the silos created around how to address risk,” said Flanagan. “There are so many risks we encounter daily and annually that there needs to be a coordinated effort with regard to how to effectively address risk and how to identify, strategize and minimize those risks.”
Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Law: Risks and Mitigation was developed during a Fulbright-funded project that Flanagan conducted in Singapore.
