Holding Malicious Cyber Actors Accountable

January 20, 2022 • 9:00 – 10:00 am EST

In 2021, all UN member states agreed on a framework for responsible behavior in cyberspace, reaffirming the shared desire for a stable and secure cyberspace. But this political commitment is not enough to prevent malicious actors from breaching these norms. Like-minded states should develop a shared approach to hold other states accountable and impose consequences when they fail to observe cyber norms and other international commitments.

Join CSIS for an event on how to increase accountability for cyber norms, featuring opening remarks from Ambassador Tobias Feakin, Australia's Ambassador for Cyber Affairs and Critical Technology and Ambassador Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar, former Estonian Ambassador-at-large for Cyber Diplomacy. Their remarks will be followed by a panel discussion with Duncan Hollis, Professor of Law at Temple Law School and Michele Markoff, Deputy Coordinator for Cyber Issues in the Office of the Coordinator for Cyber Affairs at the Department of State. 

This event is done in collaboration with the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
