COVID-19 has placed cybersecurity in the spotlight of international relations. Specifically, we are seeing both non-state and state actors amplifying activities in both the criminal and conflict spheres of cyberspace. The attacks on critical infrastructure, including water systems, hospitals and government facilities have shown the real need for enhanced diplomacy and multilateral agreements in order to regulate the cyberspace, potentially through a legal framework. Has any progress been made on this issue? What are some of the step’s states like Israel, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States can take? Our panelists below hope to address some of these issues any more.
