Guillermo Christensen Quoted in Signal Magazine: "Cheap Cyber Weapons Threaten Unintended Consequences"

Guillermo ChristensenIce Miller LLP partner Guillermo Christensen was quoted in the Signal Magazine article, "Cheap Cyber Weapons Threaten Unintended Consequences."

The article included:

“These capabilities, these technologies are becoming like a commodity, cheaper, easier, more accessible. The main takeaway we want people to have is that our current politics and our current policies with respect to these threats are woefully below standards,” Christensen says.

He adds that simply focusing on attribution—discovering who is conducting attacks—is no longer enough. “The reality is that as more countries use these tools, we’re going to probably see some very unintended consequences develop. I always tell my clients that the law I am most concerned about with respect to national security or cybersecurity … is Murphy’s Law, the law of unintended consequences.”

Furthermore, the concept of deterrence may not be effective in the cyber realm. “Unfortunately, a lot of people who think about this issue from a doctrine of operations are steeped in nuclear theory, so deterrence is a natural concept for them to default to,” Christensen says.
