Conference Call

Cybersecurity and the Laws of WarAt a recent major address, U.S. State Department Legal Advisor Harold Koh announced that a cyber attack on the United States may amount to an armed attack and, as such, can be subject to international humanitarian law and the laws of war, warranting a military response. Some observers considered the remark little more than an official recognition of a fairly evident matter, while others considered the remark much more significant and controversial. In the background, the United States continues to deal with ongoing cyber attacks originating from China. Our experts will discuss Mr. Koh’s statement and related matters.


  • Prof. Jeremy A. Rabkin, George Mason University School of Law
  • Mr. Paul Rosenzweig, Principal, Red Branch Law and Consulting


Call begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
