April 11, 2013 - April 12, 2013
For tech-savvy Silicon Valley, there is nothing more important than a free and open Internet. Yet recent reports of cyberattacks against top-tier enterprises demonstrate a need for increased vigilance in defending the networks that launched the Digital Age.
The Stanford Journal of International Law’s 2013 Symposium, "The Virtual Battlefield: Securing Cyberspace in a World Without Borders," is an invitation for some of the foremost experts in business, law, and technology to share insights about global cyberthreats and cybersecurity.
The symposium will begin on Thursday, April 11th with a keynote address by Dr. Hamadoun Touré, who presided over December’s controversial World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT). On Friday, April 12th, the symposium will continue with panels focusing on the nature of the cyberthreat, private actors’ role in policing the Internet, and the potential for multilateral treaties to resolve cybersecurity issues.
Thursday's session will begin at 6:00 PM in Stanford Law School Room 290, 559 Nathan Abbott Way, Stanford, CA 94305.
Friday's session will begin at 10:00 AM in Schwab Hall, Vidalakis Conference Room, 680 Serra Street, Stanford, CA 94305.
