The recent Microsoft report Defending Ukraine: Early Lessons from the Cyber War shows that cyberattacks have become an integral part of armed conflicts. Weaponisation of information in the war in Ukraine has tangible repercussions for the actors of International Geneva and challenges the principles and norms of the international system. Is cyber peace still possible? How can governments, the private sector and civil society work together to safeguard cyber peace?
Brad Smith will then be joined for a panel discussion with:
Robin Geiss, Director, United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research
Jürg Lauber, Permanent Representative of Switzerland to the United Nations and other Organisations in Geneva
Patrick Aebischer, Vice-Chairman, GESDA and President Emeritus, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne
This public event will be moderated by Imogen Foulkes, BBC Correspondent, Geneva and is organised in partnership with the Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator (GESDA) and with the support of the Fondation pour Genève.
