Naming and shaming of cyber intruders – does it work?
Last month Norwegian authorities made the rather unusual decision to call out - to attribute - Russia for being behind a cyber operation towards the Norwegian parliament. NUPI’s Cybersecurity Centre has the pleasure to invite to a webinar with Professor Madeline Carr. She will provide an overview of why attribution in cyberspace is difficult, the challenges of not being able to attribute - and different options on how to deal with this issue.
The growing importance of cybersecurity and the handling of the attribution of cyberoperations have led to increased action from national authorities all over the world. The cyberoperations toward the Norwegian Parliament 24 August this year and the public attribution from the Norwegian Authorities can serve as an example for its relevance, as it’s the first time Norway has gone public with a clear attribution.
The attribution of cyber operations raises several questions. At this webinar, Professor Madeline Carr will provide an overview of why attribution is difficult, the challenges of not being able to attribute - and different options on how to deal with this issue.
Moderator is Karsten Friis, head of NUPI’s Research group on security and defence.
