Yale Cyber Leadership Forum

Event Type: 
Virtual Event
Event Description: 
The Yale Cyber Leadership Forum focuses on bridging the divide between law, technology and business in cybersecurity, exposing participants to effective approaches to recognizing, preparing for, preventing, and responding to cyber threats. The Forum brings together a diverse set of thought leaders, including practitioners from leading law firms, cybersecurity technology experts, policy experts and academics working at the cutting edge of cybersecurity. The 2021 Forum, “Bridging the Divide: Sovereignty in Cyberspace?”, was a seven-part series of virtual discussions exploring how state and non-state actors increasingly use cyberspace to influence and interfere in the domestic affairs of other countries and their citizens.
