Podcast: Current Issues of Cybersecurity – the experts speak!
Do you want to get up to speed on the latest issues in cybersecurity? If so, listen/watch the discussion by the world renown experts who spoke at LEN’s recently-completed 26th Annual National Security Law conference. The video of the panel discussion is now available here
You’ll hear from Prof Gary Corn, Colonel, USA (Ret.) former staff judge advocate (General Counsel) of U.S. Cyber Command, and currently Executive Director of the Tech, Law & Security Program at American University’s Washington College of Law, Prof. David Hoffman, Duke University Sanford School of Public Policy and Associate General Counsel at Intel Corporation, and Mr. Paul Rosenzweig founder of Red Branch Consulting PLLC; Senior Fellow, R St. Institute; and also the former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and former Acting Assistant Secretary for International Affairs, in the Department of Homeland Security.
They unpack the “Solar Winds” hack and explain its disturbing implications not just for the government, but for the private sector as well. The discussion delves into the meaning of “act of war” in the cyber age, and whether or not the traditional international law interpretations related to espionage are still relevant when malevolent actors can steal such enormous amounts of data.
The panelists also talk about what can be done to deter such attacks, and to improve cybersecurity. Are public-private partnerships the answer? Can “defend forward” work? Does government need to better organize itself? What about redundancy and resilience? What does it take to incentivize a risk-management framework? Is it realistic to think we can have workable and acceptable cyber norms? Those are the kind of issues with which the panel grapples, so watch/listen-in here.
