How to Deter Nation-State CyberattacksFergus Hanson of Australian Strategic Policy Institute Makes Recommendations
Deterring nation-states such as Russia and North Korea from executing cyberattacks will require sanctions and other pressure, says Fergus Hanson of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.
In this video interview at the recent RSA APJ 2018 conference in Singapore, Hanson discusses:
- How the WannaCry and NotPetya ransomware attacks were watershed incidents;
- Why it's likely that such attacks will continue;
- Why deterrence will be the key to dissuading nation-states from undertaking offensive cyber actions.
Hanson is head of the International Cyber Policy Centre at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. He formerly was a professional Fulbright Scholar at Georgetown University, worked for the United Nations and served as a diplomat at the Australian Embassy in The Hague.
