CRS Report – Cybersecurity Deterrence

This week the Congressional Research Service (CRS) published a report on “Cybersecurity: Deterrence Policy”. It looks at the potential benefits of establishing a coherent deterrence policy to reduce the threat of cyberattacks. In the ‘Options for Congress’ section of the report it discusses the following topics:

• Creating a bureau in the U.S. Department of State (nearing implementation),

• Strengthening norms of responsible state behavior in cyberspace (on track),

• Engaging in international standards setting fora (on track),

• Improving capability building and foreign assistance financing (on track),

• Developing confidence building measures (delayed),

• Leveraging sanctions and trade enforcement actions (on track), and

• Improving attribution (delayed).
