Yale Cyber Leadership Forum: Disinformation and Active Measures

Thursday, April 29, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM




The 2021 Yale Cyber Leadership Forum will take place as a series of virtual discussions, bringing together an impressive array of attorneys, technologists, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and academics to tackle the most pressing cyberspace challenges. 

A collaboration between Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and Yale Law School’s Center for Global Legal Challenges, the Forum is directed by Oona A. Hathaway, Gerard C. and Bernice Latrobe Smith Professor of International Law. 

This year’s Forum, Bridging the Divide: Sovereignty in Cyberspace?, will explore how state and non-state actors increasingly use cyberspace to influence and interfere in the domestic affairs of other countries and their citizens. How do we understand this evolving cybersecurity threat landscape, and what are the implications for the private sector and international security writ large? How does cybersecurity impact traditional legal conceptions of sovereignty, privacy, and territorial integrity, and how can we adapt these legal frameworks to help deter malicious cyber activity? Can we develop international laws and norms that discourage the proliferation and use of the most destructive cyber technologies? How can we “bridge the divide” among private sector and government leaders to devise effective cybersecurity strategies?  

The final session, “Disinformation and Active Measures,” will feature the keynote speaker, Thomas Rid, Professor of Strategic Studies, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University

Registration is required.

Open To:

Conferences, Meetings and Seminars, General Public, Law, Politics and Society, Panel Discussions and Roundtables, Science and Technology, Talks and Lectures
