2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the signing into law, in the United States, of the Computer Fraud & Abuse Act. The CFAA was the first example of liberal democracy's attempts to protect itself and its citizens from what are now better understood as cyber-crimes or cyber-attacks.

Today, the reach and effect of technology bears little resemblance to the inchoate networks and unwieldy hardware of 1986. The opportunities have been (and remain) growing and incalculable. Unfortunately, so do the vulnerabilities. In the intervening quarter century since 1986 our ability to address the commensurate threats has not evolved at a similar rate. Indeed, too often, the scramble to catch up has been undermined by ill-informed action.

Written by Rt Hon Lord Reid of Cardowan, Dr J P MacIntosh and Len Tyler, Cyber Doctrine offers bridges between law, policy, security, and technology across our highly networked individual lives. It identifies the major challenges faced by anyone seeking to ensure the security, exploitation and exploration of cyberspace.

Cyber Doctrine will be launched on 29 June at the London Film Museum to an audience of business people, cybersecurity practitioners, technology specialists, journalists, legal experts, policy makers, entrepreneurs and academics.
