The first Tallinn Manual was the most comprehensive analysis of how existing international law applies to cyber space, mostly focusing on cyber operations occurring during armed conflict. Four years after its publication, we have witnessed cyber rapidly moving to the forefront of national security agendas in response to the proliferation of cyberattacks against states, companies, and individuals alike. The Tallinn Manual 2.0, authored by nineteen respected international law experts across the globe, adds analysis of international law governing these more common forms of cyber incidents occurring during peace time.
The discussion on February 8 gathers a distinguished group of experts to explain and debate the Manual’s provisions and share their insights into ways international law shapes stakeholders’ conduct in cyberspace.
