“Mitchell Hamline’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Law Certificate Program is a most welcome addition to the current sources of professional legal education. We enrolled a team of six employees in the program (lawyers and non-lawyers alike), and they found its coverage of privacy law, information security risk management, and data breach liability comprehensive, and they appreciated having the opportunity to analyze real-life scenarios that will without question assist with the decisions we are making within our organization. The program has challenged my staff and expanded their knowledge base and skill set. It was much more cost effective than we could do in-house or by piecing together other programs. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who deals with cybersecurity, privacy or information handling issues.”
