This volume looks at the challenges of cyberspace in an interdependent world and at the need for new, cooperative modes of governance to build cyber security. Making networks and critical infrastructure secure requires competent domestic strategies. But it also requires a willingness among governments to take the lead in supporting one another through effective legal structures and agreements such as the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime. The authors explore informal and formal bilateral and multilateral approaches to transnational cooperation on cyber security and examine the elements needed for success.
