In this lecture Michael Hoeflich, J.D. Ph.D, is the John H. and John M. Kane Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Kansas School of Law, will discuss various approaches to constructing an analytical framework for cyber defense. Hoeflich will discuss both the criminal law model and the LOAC model as they apply to cyberattacks and cyber defense. He will also discuss the approach of the Tallinn Manual to cyber defense and as well as the legal and ethical constraints upon cyber defense in both the public and private sector, including such issues as the extent and timing of disclosure of cyber attacks, ethical and legal issues regarding the investigation and prosecution of cyber attacks, and the ethical and legal issues arising from the use of "preemptive" cyberattacks as a form of cyber defense.
