This book features four national-scale cyber incidents (Estonia, Georgia, Lithuania and Radio Free Europe) which demonstrate unique dependencies resulting from the widespread use of information society. These incidents raise questions to policymakers, diplomats, the intelligence community, military, information technology managers, and economists, as well as the general citizenry. Some of those questions - and many of the answers - are legal in nature. With these four incidents, we have undertaken to highlight a variety of legal issues that re relevant for national and international cyber security preparedness. By distinguishing the common denominators and emerging trends of legal relevance, we suggest ways ahead in legal thinking. However, the lessons identified within these pages do not fully become lessons learned unless the readers continue them in deeper analysis and policy actions.
