Cyber Institutions & Sub-optimal Logic of Cyber Deterrence

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - 12:30pm

Oct 2, 2019, 12:30 – 1:30pm EDT

Can states make cyber deterrence work? Empirical research on cyber deterrence has told us relatively little about the deterrence ability of cyber institutions — publicly observable efforts aimed at signaling a country’s level of cyber offensive capability and doctrine behind its use. Doctoral Fellow Nadiya Kostyuk will demonstrate that cyber institutions deter adversaries only in limited cases and, despite this, states tend to sub-optimally over-invest resources in these institutions.
