Abstract

This Article analyzes State involvement in cybersecurity, particularly policies aimed at mitigating cyber threats below the armed attack threshold — cybercrime and espionage. Although the focus is on national cybersecurity strategies, related domestic follow-up initiatives are also considered, such as the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. Further, the vital role of the private sector to help identify and instill cybersecurity best practices is also considered as part of a polycentric ecosystem designed to help foster cyber peace.

Keywords: cybersecurity, cyber attack, privacy, espionage, NIST Framework
