Malicious activity in cyber space, particularly in recent years, has unquestionably led to heightened international tensions.  Further, encroachment into local political processes by state actors has prompted renewed attention to cyber threats by the public and officials alike.  As key players in the international arena develop greater offensive capabilities and a new hybrid form of warfare emerges, there is an urgent need for globally accepted cyber norms and guidelines. What is the actual nature and scope of cyber threats today? How have the offensive and defensive cyber capabilities of key countries taken shape globally? How has the current geopolitical climate influenced these threats and capabilities? What can the United States and its allies do to spur action and create a safer global environment? Join the NCAFP and its distinguished panel of experts for a dialogue on the current threat landscape, the viability of present capabilities and policy responses, and the priorities and options as we look to the future.
