As part of its Integrated Cybersecurity Studies program, the Robert Strauss Center at the University of Texas-Austin will host a unique and timely conference focused on the legal and policy dimensions of cybersecurity.

Passcode will join the conference on Friday, February 5th. The day's events will include a symposium bringing together technologists, government officials, privacy advocates, and scholars to discuss four cutting-edge topics: the aftermath of the “going dark” debate; the evolving regulatory environment for the rapidly-growing security-research sector including export controls; the prospects for private entities to engage in “active defense” of their networks including the “hackback” debate; and botnet takedowns.
