New Journal Issue Focuses On Cybersecurity

June 22, 2010

The new issue of the Journal of National Security Law & Policy explores in-depth the intriguing topic of cybersecurity. Volume 4, Issue 1 of the peer-reviewed journal examines the most compelling and complex items on the Obama administration's national security agenda.

In fifteen articles, including a foreword by Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the symposium focuses on the subset of issues concerned with cybersecurity - how best to protect our critical infrastructure from cyber attacks.

"Authors critically evaluate the administration's Cyberspace Policy Review, which was completed in May 2009," said Dr. Molly Pyle, the managing editor of the journal. "They examine what is known - and ascertainable - about the nature and extent of the threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences, and analyze the range of defensive options being considered by policy makers."

The Journal of National Security Law & Policy is a joint project of McGeorge and the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at Syracuse University. To read articles and subscribe online, visit
