Project title: Regulating Cybersecurity: Challenges, Limits and Regulatory Options
Project description: Cybersecurity depends not only on technological factors but also on an adequate legal framework. My PhD project scrutinizes the legal requirements for such security in order to: (i) enhance understanding of the relevant regulatory framework by critically analyzing established and proposed legal security requirements (including those enshrined in the Budapest Convention and the NIS Directive); (ii) assess whether the relevant legal security requirements take sensible account of technological developments; and (iii) identify options for regulatory reforms.
My PhD project is part of SIGNAL (http://www.jus.uio.no/ifp/english/research/projects/nrccl/signal/index.html), a research project on the legal aspects of internet security hosted at the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law (NRCCL). SIGNAL examines changes in legal frameworks for internet security by focusing on established, new and proposed legal security requirements – at both international and national levels – directed at critical internet infrastructure (CII) and cloud computing.
