This article is a sequel to Civilians in Cyberwarfare: Conscripts, to be published by the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law. Conscripts addresses the essential role of civilians as participants in cyberwarfare. Here, we explore the potential losses cyberwarfare might cause to civilian entities, including multi-national corporations, utilities, universities and local governments. We explain why cyberwarfare presents unique risks and requires unique executive responses. We also analyze how civilians should manage specific legal liability, political and reputational risks. Finally, we consider whether civilians can expect compensation if the federal government imposes new regulations, appropriates intellectual property, or even conscripts entire businesses in connection with cyberwarfare.
