Schwarcz, Wolff & Woods on Privilege & Cybersecurity
Season 1, Ep. 770
In this episode, Daniel Schwarcz, Fredrikson & Byron Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota Law School, Josephine Wolff, Associate Professor of Cybersecurity Policy at the Fletcher School at Tufts University, and Daniel W. Woods, Lecturer of Cybersecurity at the University of Edinburgh School of Informatics, discuss their article "How Privilege Undermines Cybersecurity," which will be published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology. They begin by explaining what the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrines are and how they negatively affect cybersecurity investigations and the implementation of lessons learned from those investigations. They describe their qualitative study of lawyers and cybersecurity professionals conducting cybersecurity investigations. And they make recommendations about how courts could amend their approach to privilege to improve cybersecurity outcomes.This episode was hosted by Brian L.
