As cyberspace is indeed global and not governed by traditional regimes of law and normative behaviour; it requires individuals, corporate and state level actors to cooperate and pool resources as never before. The ACC’s “Perspectives on Canada’s role in International Cyber Security: An ACC Roundtable Discussion” will explore the current cyber security policy environment, outline the threats posed to Canadians, and lastly, highlight opportunities currently available to Canadian policy makers to shape the international cyber landscape.

About the Panelists:

Alexander Moens - is a professor of Political Science at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada and a Senior Fellow in American Policy at the Fraser Institute.
