Covert attempts to influence political thinking and public opinion have long been an element of the art of intelligence. However, the use of cyber-attacks to potentially change the course of the democratic process is a recent development in statecraft.
The next CPD comes at a time when USA and the UK both recently had their democratic systems undermined by the use of cyber interference.
Uche Okereke-Fisher has kindly agreed to present the next CPD on this topic of state-sponsored cyber-attacks and Australia’s capacity to respond to them. In particular, Uche will address:
a) The circumstances in which a cyber-attack is considered to be:
i) a state-sponsored attack; and/or
ii) an act of (cyber) war,
b) The laws, rules, principles, policies, norms and strategies that regulate Australia's response to a state sponsored cyber-attacks.
