Message from Past President Laurel Bellows

"We live In a world where our national security is threatened by cyberterrorists, and where private enterprise is forced to respond to cybertheft of intellectual property on a daily basis. The ABA Cybersecurity Legal Task Force is examining risks posed by criminals, terrorists and nations that seek to steal personal and financial information, disrupt critical infrastructure, and wage cyberwar. When our national security and economy are threatened, lawyers will not stand on the sidelines."- Laurel Bellows Past President, American Bar Association
