Welcome to
Global Intellectual Property and Technology Centre (G-IPTech)


Our research focuses on the legal aspects of cybersecurity. We examine:

(1) The legal frameworks and policies governing cybersecurity, analyzing how they strike a balance between cybersecurity measures and the protection of individuals' rights and interests, as well as those of other stakeholders.

(2) The role of law in promoting the responsible use of digital technologies and ensuring the security and resilience of critical infrastructure.

(3) The challenges and opportunities arising from the widespread adoption of digital technologies and the escalating threat of cyber-attacks and other cyber risks.

(4) The impact of international agreements on cybersecurity, assessing their influence on global cybersecurity practices and regulations.
