Everyone who worries about cyber threats—including governments, pundits, scholars, business leaders—longs for a “strategy” that will deter or defeat the bad guys. Some seek analogues to the cohering strategies that enabled the West to win the Cold War at tolerable costs. Yet, cyberspace—and the nature, ownership, and effects of cyber tools—may not lend themselves to the strategies that managed military and geopolitical competition in the Cold War. We are working with senior current and former officials, and other experts, from Europe, Israel, India, China and Russia to analyze whether and how various cyber strategies could improve or undermine international security. Much of this work to date has been private; we expect in the coming year to publicize our findings.
