Chesney Introduces Lawfare’s Cyberspace Solarium Commission Report Series

Mar 20, 2020 |

On Wednesday, March 11, Lawfare kicked off its Cyberspace Solarium Commission Report Series—a series of commentaries on various aspects of the official report of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission. Robert M. Chesney, Strauss Center Director and James Baker Professor in Law, introduced the series with a brief overview of the commission. The Cyberspace Solarium Commission, he reminds, is a body established by the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act which is “charged with developing and articulating a comprehensive strategic approach to defending the United States in cyberspace.” The Lawfare series will cover a broad range of commentaries on highlights of the reports, beginning with a piece by Benjamin Jensen on “Layered Cyber Deterrence.” The full series can be accessed here.
