security, data breaches, sensitive information safeguarding, law
enforcement, cybercriminal combat, and many other cybersecurity

and protecting cybersecurity infrastructure in addition to the
cybersecurity obligations that the government faces under federal

cybersecurity. The author balances technical information with a
narrative that synthesizes the key statutes, regulations, and court
rulings into an easily digestible format for a wide range of
readers with diverse backgrounds. Written in an accessible manner,
the book provides real-world examples and case studies to help
