Cyberspace is the new battleground for state and non-state actors to
gather information, interrupt communication flows, target vulnerable
resources, and wage war. These activities, which are real and expanding,
are especially threatening for many reasons, including the fact that
they occur outside of longstanding legal rules that regulate the conduct
of war in the physical world. How should nations respond? Do we need a
Geneva Convention for cyber warfare? What should we be doing now, and
what are the risks if we fail to act? Please join us as Professor Fred
Cate tackles these and other questions.
