Description

Cyber is a game changer in national security. Great power competitors and non-state actors are leveraging the cyberspace domain to challenge the U.S. and its allies. This strategy, which exceeds the threshold of normal national competition but often falls below the level of armed conflict, is referred to as hybrid or ambiguous warfare. Competition in the ‘gray zones’ between peace and armed conflict present significant legal challenges to national security lawyers. This talk serves as a broad introduction to some of the foundational issues in the field of National Security Cyber Law (NSCL). In some respects, NSCL is an evolution of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and its subset the Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC) applied to the environment of a still-emerging technology. This is not altogether a novel issue. History is replete with examples of the law adapting to and enveloping innovation. Yet the ubiquitous nature of digital technology and its potential for consequences if disrupted by accident or malicious means has caused paradigm shifts and a question remains whether the law is sufficiently nimble throughout the cyberspace domain ecosystem. Law and policy are the focus of this discussion. A technical background is not necessary to participate in the conversation.
