In 2012, then U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta warned that “the next Pearl Harbor we confront could very well be a cyber attack that cripples our power systems, our grid, our security systems, our financial systems, our governmental systems.”
While the U.S. and other nations recognize the potentially devastating threat posed by cyber warfare, international treaties and norms regulating the use of force and the conduct of war were developed long before the advent of modern computers and the Internet. The application of international law to deter and control the elusive threat of cyber attack remains uncertain.
Organized by the Texas International Law Journal, this Core Conversation will explore the nature of cyber warfare, if and how existing international law applies to cyber attacks, and the need for international consensus and cooperation in controlling this new war front. The role of the private sector in confronting this new and evolving challenge will also be discussed.
