Major questions impacting key cybersecurity policy decisions remain unanswered. As a new Administration takes office, how should key stakeholders think about gaps like the capabilities of non-state actors to do harm in the digital space? Will other nations follow Russia’s lead and steal and leak information against foes? Is the future of a public-private partnership – especially in protecting America’s critical infrastructure – a promising one? And what’s the state of play in development of international norms? Can the U.S. provide meaningful input?
Join us for an insightful discussion on emerging issues in cybersecurity! Our upcoming conference on “Bridging the Gap on Cybersecurity Policy: Emerging International and Domestic Issues” will bring together scholars and business and government experts to present new policy ideas for pressing international and domestic cybersecurity challenges.
Representatives from the Microsoft Corporation, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, U.S. Department of Commerce, University of Washington Information School, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Jackson School of International Studies will participate.
