Burns Hall Room 3121/3125 (3rd Floor)
Public and private sectors in Southeast Asia are eager to leap into the digital age, but the governments of the region have been deliberate in defining the rules of cyberspace and governing cybersecurity, including how states interact, how grey-zone operations in cyberspace should be treated, and how geopolitical power dynamics influence norms and laws. This seminar will discuss how Southeast Asia’s priorities have shaped the region’s approach to these issues and what opportunities and challenges lie ahead for the region as it aspires to be a more connected, integrated, and resilient community.
