Prof. Lotrionte leads discussion at the Council on Foreign Affairs on cyber security

In light of a series of events over the past several months--the Stuxnet virus and the apparent attack on the Natanz nuclear enrichment facility in Iran, Wikileaks and the subsequent distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks first on the Wikileaks site itself and then on Amazon and Visa--analysts are struggling to find meaning amidst an array of underdefined and nonexistent legal and policy guidelines. On January 28, 2011 Prof. Catherine Lotrionte led a discussion on the developing landscape of legal and policy measures being considered to navigate this new realm of cyber conflict. The event was sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations as part of the The Roundtable Series on Cybersecurity and Cyberconflict, and was entitled "Legal and Policy Implications for Cyberspace."
