About This Webinar

This live and recorded web-based CLE will offer attendees an overview of cyberwarfare and what classifies as acts of war in the cyber realm. Cyberweapons can disrupt an unprecedented range of targets, from government websites to nuclear power plants to critical infrastructure. This relatively new type of threat challenges many traditional notions of what constitutes war. What do traditional legal terms such as “armed attack” or “act of war” mean in the context of cyber? Where is the threshold of use of force for cyber hostilities? This panel examines today’s cyber threats in the context of the international law of armed conflict. This includes a review of recent cyber hostilities and how they have been interpreted globally by government officials, legal scholars, and IT practitioners.

This course is brought to you by the Global Cyber Institute and Thomson Reuters and it is nationally accredited (get CLE in all 50 states).
