This lecture will focus on the new European/internation cybercrime law, 
which was drafted specifically to deal with the cross-border nature of much 
computer-related crime. As the name indicates this law stems from the 
European Union, but it has been endorsed by the United States and Canada. 
When finished the law will be opened for signature worldwide. This lecture 
will not only explain the particularities of the law but also how it 
affects privacy worldwide.

Ian (Gus) Hosein is a Tutorial Fellow and doctoral student at the London 
School of Economics. For three years Gus has lectured to undergraduate and 
postgraduate students on privacy, philosophy and politics of technology, 
regulation, cryptography policy, networks, and the concept of the 
Information Society. In his spare time he works with Privacy International, 
is a Policy Counsel for ZeroKnowledge Systems, and is an Advisory Council 
member of the Foundation for Information Policy Research. A Toronto native, 
he is a survivor of the University of Waterloo; but now lives in England 
partly because of the prevalence of pubs.

The lectures are free of charge, and there is NO need for registration.
