Source: Russian Cyber Attacks Against Georgia, Public Attributions and Sovereignty in Cyberspace | Przemyslaw Roguski | Just Security

A large-scale cyber attack knocked out thousands of websites in the country of Georgia on October 28, 2019. The attack—and the chorus of state responses to it—provide an important window into the current status of international law in this domain and the politics of attributing cyber attacks to other governments. I argue that the Georgia attack shows the opportunity costs of states not firmly grounding their reactions in the language of international law.
