World War Cyber: Global Conflict Beyond SonyHack

Sunday, March 15
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hyatt Regency Austin
Zilker Ballroom 4
208 Barton Springs Rd


The so-called Year of the Hack, from the breach at JPMorgan to the Sony hacking crisis and the ensuing international fallout, gave rise to new questions about international cyber disputes: What constitutes cyber-terrorism versus cyber-vandalism? What is the proportionate response to a cyber attack causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage? What are the rules in times of cyber war and peace? Punctuating a year marked by cyber attacks, President Obama emphasized in his final press conference of 2014 the need for the international community to establish "very clear rules of the road” governing the Internet and cyber. Join top experts in gaming and geopolitical risk assessment, cyber security, foreign affairs and international organizations to imagine and explore the future of international cyber relations in the 21st century.
