Towards a Secure and Stable Cyberspace: Is International Consensus Possible?

23 April 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Chatham House, London


Michael Chertoff, Co-Chair, Global Commission on Cyber Stability (GCCS); Secretary, US Department of Homeland Security (2005-09)
Chair: Joyce Hakmeh, Research Fellow, International Security Department, Chatham House; Co-Editor, Journal of Cyber Policy



Offensive cyber capabilities are now part of the arsenal of most developed states although so far they have been cautious in using them. With the absence of a consensus on the policies and norms to guide responsible state and non-state behaviour in cyberspace, the stability and security of cyberspace is under an increased risk now more than ever.
At this roundtable, Michael Chertoff will assess how state behaviour in the cyberspace might change. He will also discuss the Global Commission on Cyber Stability’s work in advancing cyber stability and in putting forward creative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
