About this talk

With cyber attacks increasing in frequency and impact, it is critical to understand the barriers to the development of international norms of behavior in cyberspace, the deficiencies in the law and the challenges faced by governments, the private sector, and international organizations including the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in defining thresholds for a domain with various levels of entry. This presentation will define the various aggressors in cyberspace based on the type, purpose and impact of the attack, and then analyze how they are regulated by existing laws including international treaties, the law of war, and domestic civil and criminal law. Viewers will learn: • Legal models for threat analysis • How cyber attackers are treated under various legal systems • The outcome of some of the world's largest cyber-attacks and the responses of the international community and nation states Presenter: Dr. Virginia Greiman, Sr. Advisor & Chair of the Centre for Strategic Cyberspace and Security Science (CSCSS) Cyberlaw and International Policy Centre
