Centre for International Governance Innovation, Global Cybercrime: The Interplay of Politics and Law (June 20, 2014) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This paper explores the recent unsealing of a 31-count indictment against five Chinese government officials and a significant cyber breach perpetrated by Chinese actors against Western oil, energy, and petrochemical companies. The paper concludes by noting that increased cooperation among governments is necessary but unlikely to occur as long as the discourse surrounding cybercrime remains so heavily politicized and securitized. If governments coalesced around the notion of trying to prevent the long-term degradation of trust in the online economy, then they might profitably advance the dialogue away from mutual suspicion and toward mutual cooperation.
