ASIL - American Society of International Law
2223 Massachusetts Ave, Washington, District of Columbia 20008
Advances in technology over the past several decades have resulted in a world that is highly dependent on the security and reliability of computing systems. The reliance on these systems has opened up the world to the threat of cyber operations. International law has struggled with how to address cyber operations and took a significant step forward in 2013 with the Tallinn Manual.
This live online briefing, the sixth in the Society's series on «International Law and the Trump Administration,» will feature former senior U.S. officials from Republican and Democratic administrations who were responsible for formulating policy and advising the Executive Branch on the United States' engagement on cybersecurity issues. They will discuss the extent to which international law is relevant to cyber operations; the role that the Executive Branch plays in protection against cybersecurity threats; the various efforts in the international system to address changing security threats; and what tools the administration and the US government has to respond to potential threats under international law.
This is a free, livestreamed event that will be available only online by registering at asil.org/trump. «Strengthening Cybersecurity» is the first of three sessions by ASIL devoted to security issues.
