  • Innovation on Cyber Collaboration: Leverage at Scale

    pdfRead the Publication (PDF)

    In cybersecurity, it is time to go beyond sharing and ad hoc cooperation, to collaboration at scale across borders, stakeholders, and sectors. This effort should begin with a determined study of the responses to past incidents and how to improve them, then proceed to new, action-oriented Cyber Incident Collaboration Organizations (CICO) to streamline response. The goal of a CICO must be to streamline the current response process for an incident type, to provide an umbrella to make such work easier or to upscale it. In this issue brief, Jason Healey presents the next generation of innovations that will simplify agile, scalable response to incidents—across borders, stakeholders, and sectors.

  • WikiLeaks’ CIA Document Dump: More Questions than Answers

    On March 7, WikiLeaks released a large collection of documents from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) with a catalogue of technical tools in the agency’s arsenal and the techniques it uses to get around privacy protections. This release has been compared to the ones facilitated by Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning. While it is comparable in scale, are we premature in comparing their impact?

    It should come as no surprise to anyone that the CIA (or indeed any intelligence agency in the world) uses hacking to conduct espionage operations. What is important here is that these methods have been forced into the open. These leaks raise several important questions that must not be derailed by alarmist analyses, mass paranoia, and clickbait content.

  • Tallinn Manual 2.0: Defending Cyberspace

    It is the international community’s responsibility to maintain peace and security in the face of growing cyber threats to a society that is increasingly vulnerable because of its dependence on connected technology, Henne Schuwer, the Netherlands’ ambassador to the United States, said at the Atlantic Council on February 8.

    “We have to all band together to make sure that this Internet, this cyberspace… will be a peaceful movement around the world from which we all benefit,” he said.

    In light of the Russia’s meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections, and concern looking ahead to upcoming elections in Europe in 2017—in France, Germany, the Netherlands, and possibly Italy—it has become necessary to establish a legal framework for the international community to understand a common set of rules of the road in cyberspace.

  • A Nonstate Strategy for Saving Cyberspace

    “A Nonstate Strategy for Saving Cyberspace,” the newest Atlantic Council Strategy Paper, written by Jay Healey and featuring a foreword by Atlantic Council Senior Fellow Jeff Moss, posits that the only way to ensure cyberspace remains as free, resilient, secure and awesome for future generations is to flip the relationship between Internet attackers and defenders, making cyber defense easier than offense. This is only possible, Healey argues, when new technology, policy and practice are applied patiently, internationally, at scale, and with the private sector out front.

    The paper’s launch event began with a run through of the pertinent points of the report by Healey. He was then joined by Brunswick Group’s Siobhan Gorman and MITRE Corporation’s Bobbie Stempfley for a conversation on the report’s recommendations, which was moderated by the Wall Street Journal’s Shane Harris. The panel engaged with members of the audience throughout the discussion to encourage greater dialogue and debate.

    The Atlantic Council Strategy Papers series is designed to enrich the public debate and build consensus on the great strategic challenges of our time, as well as to help shape strategic thinking in US and allied governments, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the global media. Check out the entire series on the Strategy Initiative's microsite, ACStrategy.net.
