Securing cyberspace - A Conversation with Dean Bobby Chesney and Professor Ciaran Martin

This is a hybrid event.

Governments and private companies around the world face a growing number of cyber security threats and attacks that are expected to increase in frequency, severity, and complexity in the coming years. Yet despite shared concern about the evolving cyber threat landscape, and a general consensus about the applicability of existing international law to the cyber context, global efforts to regulate cyberspace have struggled to keep pace.

Robert (Bobby) Chesney, Dean of the University of Texas School of Law and James A Baker Chair III in the Rule of Law and World Affairs at UT, joins Professor Ciaran Martin at the Blavatnik School to discuss emerging trends in cyber security and pathways towards strengthening international law protections in cyberspace.

This event is the keynote session of a closed-door roundtable held at the Blavatnik School in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin.
