After the last round of the UN sponsored consultations on international cybersecurity collapsed in 2016, the international situation in cyber diplomacy has been in flux: will there be other UN rounds of discussion? Will private sector-organized initiatives claim a role? And what norms and rules of behavior in cyberspace for state and (and non-state actors) will be agreed?
The Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace has been working on these issues. At Black Hat USA 2018, Commissioners Christopher Painter, James Andrew Lewis, Jane Holl Lute and Jeff Moss will discuss the new norms on safeguarding the critical infrastructure of the Internet and protecting electoral systems from attack. Black Hat also provides an opportunity for the GCSC to provide insight into some of the current thinking of the Commission and the way forward for global Internet governance. Panels will also include representatives of government, international organizations and major corporations working on the subject worldwide.
The panel on New Norms and Policies in Cyber-Diplomacy will take place in the Jasmine Ballroom on Thursday, August 9th from 09:45am. The format for the panel is 50-minute briefings. For more information on the panel, the speakers, and other events taking place at Black Hat visit the website here.
