Survey Topic

Working Title: How far do we take offensive cybersecurity?

Working Description: This session will discuss the logistics (waiting vs. following an active lead), legalities (law enforcement coordination, knowing when you’ve hit foreign cyber space and what to do, disclosure, reporting) and ethics (should anyone hack- back or does that exacerbate the problem) of who is responsible for cyber investigations: the government, a privatized cyber military, companies with critical infrastructure/public assets (public v. private networks), a hybrid of those, or anyone with a smartphone? Should the government explicitly legalize hacking- back; how so? Are there specific sectors (e.g., utilities, DNS, election infrastructure, mobile) that should permit hacking-back?
