Global Fragmentation in Cyber Policy

Global Fragmentation in Cyber Policy
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
9 am – 11am
CSIS Headquarters

BSA will co-host a panel with the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) on the balkanization of cybersecurity laws around the world. Governments face daunting challenges in securing cyberspace, protecting online privacy, and managing the flows of data. As these governments consider laws and policies to confront these challenges, there is growing divergence of approaches across the European Union, Asia, and the United States, potentially fragmenting global markets. With regional views from Europe and Estonia, China, India, and the US, our discussion will focus on the need for harmonization and cooperation on global approaches to cybersecurity and regulating emerging technologies.
