Description

Cyberspace is being re-shaped by technological changes, a growing underworld of cyber crime, a burgeoning cyber security industrial complex, and an increasingly intense geopolitical contest over the domain itself. These forces threaten to subvert cyberspace through over-reaction, the imposition of heavy-handed controls, and through partition or cantoning.

Ron Deibert is professor of Political Science and director of the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies and the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto.
