An International Alliance for Cyber Security
Alliance is a strong word for a strong relationship. An alliance that sought to achieve collective security in the cyber domain would need to include states with closely aligned interests, would need to agree formal terms of alliance, and would need carefully-defined conditions governing mutual support. Whether or not the United States were formally a member of this alliance, American participation (or non-participation) would critically shape the alliance. Participants close to US security structures, senior figures (active and retired in the Five Eyes Community) and senior cyber security professionals would contribute both the political and technical realities that would determine the paper’s message.
