Did the cyber war really happen? The 2022 lessons-learned for cyber-stability

2022 has turned out to be a year no one probably expected it to be: ongoing military conflict with significantly new lessons learned by cyber ‘firefighters’, and a ‘cyberwar’ that never happened (or did it happen?) – despite being feared to beforehand in expert discussions. Why? What lessons are we to take from the cyber realm to continue the search for cyber-stability in spite of the current geopolitical tensions among key cyber powers in international relations? And what trends are we likely to see in the future in shaping cyberspace?

We invite experts and representatives of the international multistakeholder community to join us in an expert discussion to address these questions, and to reflect on the key cyber events of 2022 and how they may have changed our perception of ‘cyber-stability’.
