Cybersecurity and the industry, innovation, and issues it generates are profoundly transformative and intensely critical at every level and many or most social, corporate, and government functions.

Cybersecurity legal issues cover a vast range: cyber warfare, national security, critical infrastructure defense, Internet access and freedom, data privacy and security, trusted software development and deployment, law firms’ protection of patent application, bank, and other confidential information, “hacking back” and other active cyber defense measures, information-sharing by cyberattacked organizations, and more.

This brief article begins outlines the relevance of cybersecurity and cybercrime to intellectual property and innovation and provides extensive statistics and citations.

Keywords: cybersecurity, cybercrime, intellectual property, innovation, technology, computers, cloud, information technology, legal practice
