Describe the applicable laws and policies (in the US and EU) of cyber defense responsibilities related to the handling of data as it pertains to issues of legal, ethical and/or agency auditing (i.e., in regulated industries such as banking, finance, healthcare, etc.).

Objectives
In the landmark decision Google Spain v AEPD and Mario Costeja González, the Court
of Justice of the European Union has declared that individuals have a so-called ‘right to
be forgotten.’ This assignment aims to explore the philosophical and legal scope of
control over the storage of private information in online systems in the European Union
(EU) and US. The learning outcomes for this assignment are to provide students the
ability to examine the legal dispute (civil, criminal, private) in the landmark case of 2014
and understand the legal and ethical arguments and evidence used to resolve it (PLE3).
Another learning outcome is to understand the organization’s responsibilities related to the
handling of data in the US and EU and their obligation to maintain privacy as it pertains
to legal, ethical, and/or agency auditing issues (PLE2).
Structure
This legal and ethical assignment is designed to provide students with hands-on
experience analyzing a historical case and identifying real-world solutions for fulfilling the
legal and ethical requirements associated with information privacy. For the second part of
the assignment (Outcome PLE2), students will select an organization that they are
familiar with to use as the basis for this part of the assignment.
