Understanding the Complicated Game of Attribution

Format: On Demand
Duration: 1 Hour 2 Minutes

About This Webinar

This CLE will provide attendees an overview of cyber attribution through a legal lens.
In the cyber realm, criminal attribution is a key delineating factor between cybercrime and other threats. When investigating a given incident, law enforcement is challenged with tracing the action to its source and determining whether the actor is a criminal or whether the actor may be a terrorist or state actor posing a potentially greater national security threat. Blurry lines between various types of malicious activity in cyberspace may make it difficult for investigators to attribute an incident to a specific individual or organization.
From the perspective of the victim, some degree of factual uncertainty attaches to any of type of attribution, although attribution to an ultimately
responsible party, also implicates to a very large degree legal, policy, and political questions. But from the perspective of the adversary, the ability to conceal its identity from the victim with high confidence is also uncertain.
The decision to work with law enforcement will ultimately come down to the desired outcome of the organization, and evaluating if attribution is even feasible.
