42 minute listen | September.01.2021

Private sector cyberattacks are on the rise and governments around the globe are grappling with their level of involvement. This episode explores the roles played by the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, other federal agencies, and how they might respond to private sector attacks. Also discussed are the concepts of “forward defense” and “persistent engagement,” as well as President Biden’s recent pronouncement that the U.S. will no longer respond to cyberattacks solely through law enforcement.

Gary Corn is the Program Director of the Tech, Law & Security program at American University’s Washington College of Law and an adjunct professor of cyber and national security law.  One of the most prolific writers on the topic of cyberwar and cyber conflict, Gary is a retired Army colonel who is widely recognized as one of the nation’s top experts in this area.
