Featured Guests: Dr. Tobias Feakin, Ambassador for Cyber Affairs and Critical Technology, Australia, Alexander Niejelow, Senior Vice President for Cybersecurity Coordination and Advocacy, Mastercard, Kaja Ciglic, Director, Digital Diplomacy, Microsoft, Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar, Ambassador at Large for Cyber Diplomacy, Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Camille Morfouace-de Broucker, Cybersecurity Policy Advisor, French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs

The U.S. Department of State, in consultation with industry and other federal agencies as appropriate should promote a system of norms, built through international engagement and cooperation, that promotes responsible behavior in cyberspace and over time reduces cyber risk to critical infrastructure. Such a framework should build on existing agreements and include confidence-building measures and enforcement. The U.S. government should focus on helping foreign governments with norms implementation, building and partnering with allies to hold nation-state actors accountable for cyber activity that deviates from norms of responsible behavior, and working on identifying gaps in established norms.

During this event with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, experts discuss all of the above and what the U.S. and other countries can do to increase stability in cyberspace. This includes working with the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace or the Paris Call for Trust and Stability in Cyberspace.
