Geneva workshop on Cyber Security and Warfare

On 19-20 December 2018 Pugwash held a workshop in Geneva, co-sponsored and hosted by the Geneva Center for Security Policy (GCSP), on the topic of cyber security and warfare. The meeting gathered together 20 experts and practitioners for a broad set of discussions. An underlying theme was to understand how cyber-attacks might trigger or exacerbate conflict at the international level, particularly where it concerns the core Pugwash interests in the nuclear and WMD realm. The goal of this preliminary meeting, held at a particularly difficult climate for arms control in general, was to discuss the scope of where Pugwash can make an impact in a future program of work.
