This publication is a compilation of papers from the 2010 Conference on Cyber Conflict Law and Policy track. The book provides insight to issues like cyber activities in the light of collective security, cyber security regulations and legal constructs for state responsibility.
In 2010, Law and Policy track of the CCD COE's annual conference was focused primarily on four problem areas: data exchange, state responsibility, criminal cooperation and the applicability of international law. Each of these problems was addressed by legal and criminal law perspective, the intent being to identify gaps between these areas of law and thereby come up with proposals on how to improve the existing legal framework. The conclusion of "Legal and Policy Proceedings" introduces the concept of 10 rules of cyber behaviour, an attempt by the CCD COE Legal Branch to bring more focus to the debate around legal issues related to cyber security and make the discussion easier to follow for legal experts with different professional background as well as for non-lawyers.
Authors of the papers include Maeve Dion from the Stockholm University, Ulf Häussler from the and Daniel J. Ryan from the US National Defence University, Julie Ryan from the George Washington University, Thomas C. Wingfield from the George C. Marshall European Centre for Security Studies and finally the CCD COE Law and Policy branch experts Eneken Tikk, Kadri Kaska and Anna-Maria Talihärm.
