The Hague Program for Cyber Norms focuses on the development and implementation of cyber norms. We ask how norms are and can be applied to support cyber security, stability and peace. For this purpose, we examine how consensus is developing, among governments, academics and the society, on certain norms and how they should apply to State behaviour in cyberspace. We also investigate the development of normative thought and scholarship in this field and contribute to the dialogue about standards of responsible behaviour in use of ICTs.
Our Program is an independent and inclusive platform that welcomes both academic and non-academic partners. We invite international thinkers and practitioners to apply critical thinking to cyber peace and security issues.
The Hague Program for Cyber Norms falls under the Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) at the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs of Leiden University. It is located at the university’s campus in The Hague.
Episode 2: Threat intel and cyber research – a troubled relationship?
In this second episode, our host Monica Kaminska talks to Juan Andres Guerrero-Saade (Security Researcher & Adjunct Professor of Strategic Studies at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies), Florian Egloff (Senior Researcher in Cybersecurity at the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich) and Frédérick Douzet (Professor of Geopolitics at the French Institute of Geopolitics (University of Paris 8) and director of the Center Geopolitics of the Datasphere (GEODE)). They discuss the challenges of getting access to and using private sector research, the misalignment of incentives for sharing data and why universities might be well-positioned to do their own APT research. SolarWinds/ Sunburst thrown in for good measure.
