On December 4, the Valdai Discussion Club held an expert discussion, titled "Dilemmas in Cybergovernance".
Cybersecurity is increasingly a central concern for governments, business companies and individuals.
At the international political level, two issues are particularly controversial: global regulation and cyber-actions by proxy.
Concerning global regulation, two divergent positions are present in the debate. On the one hand there are those who argue for the need of a new global cyber convention. On the other those who argue in favour of cyber sovereignty.
Concerning cyber-actions by proxy, the controversy is first about the attribution and second about the legitimacy of this public-private partnership with offensive nature aiming at interfering with domestic affairs of foreign countries.
These are two crucial issues that are shaping the debate and the policies of cyberpolitics.Speakers:
