Institute and M.A. Program Events
M.A. Student EventsDuring the academic year, the Institute's M.A. students participated in various academic and work-related events that focus on topics revolving around international law and government.
The Institute for Law, Science, and Global Security currently hosts Georgetown University's Cyber Project, directed by Dr. Catherine Lotrionte. With an increasing demand for policy development in conjunction with legal analysis of cybersecurity measures, the Institute added the Cyber Project as a major element to its work. To launch the project more formally, Georgetown University hosted a panel discussion on the topic of Integrating Disciplines: Cybersecurity Law and Policy. The event included representatives from the public, private, and scientific communities including General Michael Hayden and Lawrence Livermore National Security Laboratory.
In February 2010 the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) hosted Cyber ShockWave, a simulated cyber attack on the United States, providing an unprecedented look at how the government would develop a real-time response to a large-scale cyber crisis affecting much of the nation. Georgetown University’s Dr. Lotrionte collaborated with BPC and other public and private sector organizations to make this simulation possible.
