Increasingly frequent and severe cyberattacks targeting the private sector globally are fueling debates over whether to allow corporations to engage in “active cyber defense.”  Numerous trends point to the potential for this practice to grow internationally, potentially posing significant dilemmas for governance.

As part of DC CyberWeek, Carnegie’s Cyber Policy Initiative invites you to the launch event of the Carnegie report Private Sector Cyber Defense: Can Active Measure Help Stabilize Cyberspace?


This report assesses the potential risks and benefits of creating space for a legitimate practice of private sector ACD internationally, and explores how insurance companies and policies could provide a framework to bound such activity and incentivize responsible conduct.
