Chatham House, London

Jason Healey, Editor, A Fierce Domain: Conflict in Cyberspace, 1986 to 2012; Director, Cyber Statecraft Initiative, Atlantic Council
Chair: Dave Clemente, Research Associate, International Security, Chatham House

Overview

Even in its earliest history, cyberspace had disruptions caused by malicious actors that went beyond being mere technical or criminal problems. Cyber conflicts exist in the overlap of national security and cyber security, where nations and non-state groups use offensive and defensive cyber capabilities to attack, defend, and spy on each other, usually for political or other national security purposes. 

At this event, the speaker will draw on his new edited volume, A Fierce Domain: Conflict in Cyberspace, 1986 to 2012. He will discuss the most important cyber conflicts and explain what lessons can be drawn.
