Digital Geneva Convention | Policy paper
Today’s digital world depends on people, businesses and governments trusting in technology and in the systems that protect them. If someone steals or damages physical property, investigators can collect evidence and involve the courts. In the digital world, the evidence of cyberattacks is often spread across technology providers, telecom operators, and victims. Furthermore, if it is a government behind the cyberattack then the challenge of proving their responsibility becomes all the more complex.
The need for an attribution organization clearly exists today. The model and operation of the organization is where further debate across different stakeholders needs to occur in the weeks and months to come.
