Cyber Insurance Today: Saving It Before It Needs Saving, Angela Nieves Jan 2020

Cyber Insurance Today: Saving It Before It Needs Saving, Angela Nieves

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

Cyber insurance, which covers a company’s losses and costs stemming from a cyberattack, represents a nearly $5 billion global market. But have stakeholders shaped a sustainable model? This article analyzes contrasting claims about the viability of cyber insurance. It proposes measures to ensure the survival of the cyber insurance market, which should be immediately addressed given the current state of the world and the fact that even pre-COVID-19, businesses worldwide stood to lose over $5.2 trillion over the next five years due to cybercrimes. Unless action is taken to mitigate the fallout from cyber events, the cyber insurance ...

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper maps contemporary trends in Australian and American radio documentary production.

This paper traces the evolution of radio documentary forms and explores how globalisation of radio listenership via podcasting and sharing of content on social media is beginning to change documentary. It explores how stellar programs such as This American Life (TAL) and Radiolab ...

He practices in painting and drawing, usually within an intimate scale, and uses a muted colour palette and minimal, relaxed tones.

Should New Bills Of Rights Address Emerging International Human Rights Norms? The Challenge Of “Defamation Of Religion”, Robert C. Blitt

Robert C. Blitt

The emerging international human rights norm of “defamation of religion,” an ongoing flashpoint in debates at the United Nations (UN) and elsewhere, merits the attention of all parties playing a role in the drafting of new bills of rights. This article uses the case study of defamation of religion, as an emerging norm and the current debate over a possible Australian bill of rights, to argue that a well-rounded drafting process. This drafting process should contemplate the relevancy and impact of emerging norms as a means of enhancing the process, deepening domestic understanding of rights, and ensuring an outcome instrument ...


Smes, Open Innovation And Ip Management: Advancing Global Development, Stanley P. Kowalski Dec 2009

Smes, Open Innovation And Ip Management: Advancing Global Development, Stanley P. Kowalski

Law Faculty Scholarship

[Excerpt] Micro-Small-Medium Enterprises (abbreviated herein henceforth as “SMEs”) are global drivers of technological innovation and economic development. Perhaps their importance has been somewhat eclipsed by the mega-multinational corporate entities. However, whereas the corporations might be conceptualized as towering sequoia trees, SMEs represent the deep, broad, fertile forest floor that nourishes, sustains and regenerates the global economic ecosystem.

[. . .]

Broadly recognized as engines of economic and global development, SMEs account for a substantial proportion of entrepreneurial activity in both industrialized and developing countries. Indeed, their role as dynamos for technological and economic progress in developing countries is critical and cannot be underemphasized ...


Boundaries, Biodiversity, Resources, And Increasing Maritime Activities: Emerging Oceans Governance Challenges For Canada In The Arctic Ocean, Clive H. Schofield, Ian Townsend-Gault, Tavis Potts Jan 2009

Boundaries, Biodiversity, Resources, And Increasing Maritime Activities: Emerging Oceans Governance Challenges For Canada In The Arctic Ocean, Clive H. Schofield, Ian Townsend-Gault, Tavis Potts

Faculty of Law - Papers (Archive)

The Arctic region is undergoing rapid environmental and socioeconomic change. As one of the most rapidly warming places on the planet, the Arctic is experiencing dramatic climate change-related impacts, such as a severe downward trend in sea ice cover. The scientific community projects that this trend could result in a sea ice-free summer by as early as 2020. As conditions warm, the retreat of sea ice is driving an expansion of political and economic activity. Recent world media attention has been focused on the Arctic to an unprecedented extent. Much of the discourse has been devoted to a perceived Arctic ...


Structural Rights In Privacy, Harry Surden Jan 2007

Structural Rights In Privacy, Harry Surden

Articles

This Essay challenges the view that privacy interests are protected primarily by law. Based upon the understanding that society relies upon nonlegal devices such as markets, norms, and structure to regulate human behavior, this Essay calls attention to a class of regulatory devices known as latent structural constraints and provides a positive account of their role in regulating privacy. Structural constraints are physical or technological barriers which regulate conduct; they can be either explicit or latent. An example of an explicit structural constraint is a fence which is designed to prevent entry onto real property, thereby effectively enforcing property rights ...


Global Law: A Legal Phenomenon Emerging From The Process Of Globalization, Pierrick Le Golf Jan 2007

Global Law: A Legal Phenomenon Emerging From The Process Of Globalization, Pierrick Le Golf

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

This article addresses the following question: Is Global Law merely a trendy theory, or are there concrete and factual elements allowing submission of irrefutable evidence of a movement toward the creation of a stand-alone international legal system? In this piece, Le Goff explores the idea of global law, and whether a harmonized scheme based on converging national laws and practices, international custom and values, among others, is emerging in the global economy. The first part of the article attempts to define the notion of global law, and to distinguish global law from other disciplines claiming a direct link to or ...


South Pacific Security And The Emerging Doctrine Of 'Co-Operative Intervention': The Pacific Way Or Howard's Way, Gregor H. Allan Jan 2005

South Pacific Security And The Emerging Doctrine Of 'Co-Operative Intervention': The Pacific Way Or Howard's Way, Gregor H. Allan

Faculty of Law - Papers (Archive)

The end of the Cold war catalysed considerable recalibration in the world's security architecture. In Australia, whilst this entailed a closer embrace of Asia, the South Pacific did not initially engage Australian security interests. However, post 11 September 2001 and post the terrorist attacks in Bali of October 2002, much has changed. The notion of 'comprehensive security'—in which Pacific security is seen as a function of a wide variety of social, political and strategic phenomena—has assumed such prominence it has ushered in an expanded justification for one state to intervene in the affairs of another. Although, as ...
