ISP Law Student Group Logo
 

The Information Security & Privacy (ISP) Law student group is the first ever student group dedicated to data at the Washington College of Law. This group seeks to increase the level of discourse on campus and in our community on all things related to data security and information privacy.  It seeks to do this by maintaining a student-run blog and hosting a broad array of monthly events on various topics within the field.  Potential topics include, but are certainly not limited to: cross-border data transfers, consumer privacy, cybercrime, and the Internet of Things.
