Cybersecurity Policies and International Relations: The Case of the US and Iran
View Polygence scholar page
One area of increased attention for defense departments around the world is the area of cybersecurity. This paper takes two very different players in cybersecurity--the US and Iran--to outline their general approaches, find areas of potential conflict, and outline potential policy proposals to avoid confrontation in the future. In this sense, this paper makes a wider contribution to the many ways in which states are pursuing cyber goals today and also contributes to the discussion of how even non-allied states might work together in this sphere.
