Tallinn Paper: Opportunities for Public and Private Attribution of Cyber Operations

The 12th Tallinn Paper (Young Scholar Edition), authored by Garrett Derian-Toth, Ryan Walsh, Alexandra Sergueeva, Edward Kim, Alivia Coon, Hilda Hadan and Jared Stancombe focuses on opportunities for public and private attribution of cyber operations. The research reveals a fragmentation among actors regarding attitudes towards attribution and information sharing. Authors have also identified factors that reflect positive outcomes for attribution, including developing cyber norms, increasing the role of private sector actors and evolving laws that actively prevent cyber interference.

This issue is the outcome of Indiana University Cybersecurity Risk Management Programme Capstone Project 2020. CCDCOE seeks to help empower upcoming voices in the cooperative cyber defence community by providing a supportive forum for young cyber defence specialists and relevant educational endeavours to share their ideas and build networks.
