Rod Rosenstein to Keynote Cybercrime Symposium at Georgetown Law

November 27, 2018

WASHINGTON – On Thursday, Nov. 29, Georgetown Law’s Center on National Security and the Law and the Department of Justice’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section will hold a one-day cybercrime symposium featuring a lunchtime keynote by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at Georgetown Law.


In December 2014, Georgetown Law and the U.S. Department of Justice held the “Cybercrime 2020” symposium to examine where technology was headed, how it was likely to be exploited in the near future, and what law enforcement could do to address developing threats while balancing privacy and civil liberties.

This year, “Cybercrime 2020: Revisiting the Future of Online Crime and Investigations” will reexamine the predictions made at the last symposium and explore how newly emerging cybercrime trends and the courts’ latest technology-focused rulings are reshaping investigative techniques. Panels will explore how the courts and policymakers – in the United States and abroad – are likely to respond to recent advances in technology and evolving tech policy, and whether U.S. law enforcement’s existing tools and capabilities are up to the challenges ahead.

The conference will bring together experts from academia, the government, Congress, and private industry to shed light on the future of online crime and investigations.
