About the Information Security Committee (ISC)

This Committee is comprised of a diverse group of lawyers, security experts, technologists, auditors and other professionals, whose focus includes the examination and analysis of legal, business, and technical aspects of securing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

Our focus spans across the spectrum of information security issues, including: emerging issues surrounding the protection of information and critical infrastructures within computer systems and networks, such as the Internet; all aspects of litigation involving computer ecosystems as well as the electronic information generated by them; and regulatory and legal information security compliance and contracting.

The ISC provides a venue for the examination of legal frameworks impacting the deployment, management and regulation of networks and infrastructure systems of immense value and complexity. The ISC draws on the multi-disciplinary expertise of members to explore integrated solutions to problems where the law and information security intersect.

The ISC has been the focal point of diverse secure electronic commerce law initiatives since 1992, and its body of published work includes globally influential documents relating to electronic authentication, digital signatures, and public key infrastructures. ISC members interests also include the security aspects of protecting private electronic consumer and health care patient information, electronic evidence, securing electronic financial transactions and payments and compliance with the increasing patchwork of information security and privacy laws.

Increasingly, the ISC's work encompasses issues involved with identifying security threats and vulnerabilities to computer systems and networks, implementing security solutions in response to vulnerabilities, handling security breaches and other incidents and the development of new approaches to digital data and digital data generation within both a pre-litigation and litigation environment.

The ISC's list serve is recognized as a leading on-line forum for the robust debate on the spectrum of views from its members and other SMEs on these emerging issues of law and policy in the network infrastructure security arena.
