    Implications and Impacts of Viewing Cybersecurity from an Economic Perspective
    Atrium Hall
    What are the implications and potential impacts of viewing cybersecurity from an economic rather than just a security perspective? Does an economic perspective promote greater clarity with respect to how government(s) can and should begin to address and respond to cybersecurity challenges? Join serving Representative Jim Langevin (D-RI) and former Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Mike Rogers (R-MI) for an exploration of these thought-provoking issues.

    The Future After Tallinn Manual 2.0

    In this panel featuring the General and Managing Editors of the Manual, we examine (1) Tallinn 2.0’s value to practitioners and academicians in its first year of release and (2) whether Tallinn 2.0’s existence as an objective restatement of what the law is (lex lata, as opposed to lex ferenda, or what the law should be) helps to meaningfully shape the future of cyber conflict.

    Public-Private Partnerships
    Atrium Hall
    Conventional wisdom on technology policy has been that government regulation would interfere with the market and ‘fixes’ may not only fail to help, but may make things work. Yet similar conventional wisdom has long acknowledged the very real and continually growing cybersecurity risks across the economy. The challenge, then, is to identify what the alternatives to regulation look like. On a spectrum from industry-led initiatives with government engagement to official ‘Public-Private Private Partnership,’ what can work and what doesn't work? This panel will explore this issue with senior executives from a range of industries, looking not only to their sectors, but the broader, interconnected ecosystem. If government is not dictating the terms, how will industry lead, given the state of security today? And if industry innovation is critical to any solution, how can government facilitate progress?

    The Role of Hackers in Cyber Conflict
    Ballroom A
    Once the realm of playful exploration of technology, hacking has risen to national and international prominence. Hackers serve as network defenders, drivers of innovation and entrepreneurship, commercial penetration testers that probe and secure enterprises, independent researchers who keep corporations honest through responsible disclosure of vulnerabilities, and sometimes, hackers turn to illegal activities. Nation-states are forming armies of hackers to perform cyber operations on their behalf to great effect. Policy makers grapple with solutions that are intended to solve security problems, but risk killing off this vibrant but fragile ecosystem of independent security researchers. The problem is compounded by media accounts that breathlessly paint hackers with a shadowy and malicious brush. This panel of experts on hacking and the hacking community will explore these issues and ultimately seek to answer the question: “What is and is not the role of hackers in cyber conflict?”

    Journalism and Cyber Conflict
    Atrium Hall
    In the current news environment, which seems like a continuous cycle of “breaking news,” what challenges and ethical issues do responsible journalists face when reporting on stories that involve national security issues? To what extent are seasoned journalists and analysts now adapting their craft, or perhaps re-focusing parts of their mission, to account for the reality that an adversarial nation state interfered with our election and that two different branches of government are now investigating this interference?
