This succinct Advanced Introduction delivers insights into the pressing technological, political, and legal challenges of cybersecurity. Exploring cybersecurity threats on both a national and global scale, it provides guidance on how countries use domestic and international law to counter crime, terrorism, espionage, and armed conflict in cyberspace.
 
Key features:

• Centres cybersecurity law within the internet as a technology, cyberspace as a political and governance space, and transformations in international relations over the past twenty years
• Tracks how the development of policies on responding to different cyber threats, improving cyber defences, and increasing cyber deterrence affects the use and effectiveness of cybersecurity law
• Analyses whether the ongoing evolution of cyber threats changes, or should change, how countries apply domestic and international law to counter cybersecurity challenges concerning crime, terrorism, espionage, and armed conflict
 
This Advanced Introduction is an invaluable resource for researchers and students of law, public policy, and international relations focusing on how digital technologies, the internet, and cyberspace affect world affairs. It also serves as an accessible entry point for government, corporate, and NGO staff concerned with cybersecurity law.
Critical Acclaim
‘True to its title, Advanced Introduction to Cybersecurity Law offers both an excellent entry point for readers unfamiliar with the domestic and international legal issues raised by a rising number of cybersecurity threats (and capacities) alongside a sophisticated survey of the extant geopolitical, ideological, and technical contexts that will benefit existing experts. With careful and concise assessments of the regime complexes that address cyber manifestations of four security threats – crime, terrorism, espionage, and armed conflict – Fidler’s work offers a clear-eyed view of present challenges alongside a critical analysis of the law’s capacity to redress them in the coming years.’
