By nature, cyber conflicts are an international issue that span across nation-state borders. By the end of the course, you will be able to apply the knowledge gained for analysis and management of international cyber incidents and conflicts including for activities such as development of policy related to cybercrime and cyberwarfare. Management of cyber incidents and conflicts requires an interdisciplinary perspective including an understanding of: 1) characteristics of the cyber threats and conflicts themselves, 2) international efforts to reduce and improve cyber security, and 3) psychological and sociopolitical factors. The course is designed to reach an international audience and will encourage discussion on relevant current events among participants to enrich the experience with various personal and cultural perspectives on cutting-edge issues. In addition, assignments and other assessments will supplement video lectures and selected readings to ensure application of the material. After taking this course you will be able to: • Identify different types of actors involved in cyber threats (individuals, organizations & nation-states) • Distinguish between different types of threats and issues in cyber security including, data theft, political espionage, critical infrastructure protection, and propaganda • Detail the basic characteristics of the Internet infrastructure and international efforts to address Internet governance • List several international efforts to address cyber crime and espionage • Evaluate how principals that govern international conflicts might be applied in context of cyber security • Apply different psychological theories of human motivation and cooperation and communication and political theories in analysis of different international issues related to cyber security including censorship, media operations and role of social technologies. Grading: Your grade is assessed based on discussion posts and quizzes. Individual taking this course for credit (i.e. students at the University at Albany y will be required to engage in additional activities communicated to them directly). Recommended Background: No background knowledge or skills are necessary, but an understanding and familiarity of cyber security, Internet infrastructure and international law would be advantageous for anyone who participates in the course. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Ersin Dincelli and Nic DePaula were the instructional designers for the course who assisted in the recording of the videos, reviewing material, creating slides, assessments and some of the content. Without their tremendous effort this would not have been possible. We also acknowledge the financial support for the recordings from the University at Albany as well as the support from Media and Marketing. Finally, thanks to Lisa Stephens who is the SUNY liaison to Coursera for being a strong supporter of the MOOC....

Great course! Learned a lot about Cyber Warfare and how countries can build up trust and cooperation between themselves to tackle third party threats in the cyberspace.

This is a great course to get a solid understanding of the human, the psychological aspect of international cyber activities. This covers civilians, criminals, and of course associated government activities. There is a strong component on the motivation of cyber attackers. This is crucial for any cyber analyst, since there is the potential to dissuade or even eliminate the motivation for the cyber hacker to carry out attacks.

Another really interesting aspect of the cyber space arena is the comparison of it to the traditional war space. Is it the same? This gets to the heart of the nature of cyber space, it's intangibility, and its no-boundaries, classless nature. The final analogy drawn is between the cyber tools/war race and the nuclear arms race. Readings support the fact that we are in the early stages of cyber space, but are they really the same?

I enjoyed this course, and it's different approach to more technical cyber courses. My only comment would be that the quiz content would be more broad, and not relate directly back to smaller quizzes in each lecture. In other words, to allow for more thinking on the topic relating to the readings, and understanding of the materials, since this is not a cut and dry cyber course, it is quite subjective. Even short answer would be welcome. Other than that I gained a lot of context to cyber security overall from this course.

This was a very good course (4.5/5.0). One area that could be improved would be the discussion of industrial control systems (ICS). On lecture briefly mentions STUXNET and SCADA, but this was rather incomplete discussion. A very recent incident that could have been used was the attack on the Ukraine Power grid as a demo of a cyber attack against infrastructure.

I am perhaps biased toward this area, since this is my field of work.

I'd say it has been interesting for me as a graduate of International Relations. The readings are also superb. I gave 4 stars because the lectures were not the most interactive or interesting ones I have seen. They are practically reading off scripts, hence, my advice would be turning up the playback speed to 1.5 or 1.75 and read the transcript. It is much faster to absorb this way. I finished the whole course in just 2 weeks, had participated fully in all the discussions and read/studied the readings in detail.

International Cyber Conflict course provides a great insight into increasingly relevant topic. The course is very well structured to help even a beginner student to understand broad range of issues such as different cyber terms, cyberspace and government, conflict and cooperation, international law and the problems of attribution. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone interested in this field.

(To give the full 5 stars, I would appreciate a mention of the works of Thomas Rid, John Stone or Libicki.)

readings should be checked, some are missing.

at least a question in the final exam does not match with the same question in the quizzes:

"basic lessons for international cooperation? - all of the above:

understanding how other party views the issue is important; both should have same understanding of consequences

strategies for what to do that does not involve mutual destruction (govening policies for when to use cyber weapons)

developing arms control treaties with positive sum scenarios"

Course in not only just about theory of cyber security .But also ,It also accommodates psychological view to cyber world . This makes it more interesting .The brief part of law related to cyber security buttress the content maturity .However, More information on privacy should be added .If done ,course is a 5 star Course .Moreover, every lecture gives information.So, efficiently crafted out of course .Overall,it's worth taking and worth time spending

The class was interesting, and the topics were presented in an understandable format. The lectures appropriately covered the information noted within the syllabus. The earlier lectures were more helpful from a technical perspective than the later lectures. The final lessons covered a lot of theory regarding international political considerations associated with cyber risks.

cette formation m'a permis de comprendre qui sont les différents acteurs en matière de cyber guerre, les difficultés juridiques existantes pour punir les coupables, la difficulté a prouver l'origine d'une attaque, et les voies d'accord ou de traités à établir en s'inspirant de l'histoire des guerres passées pour tenter de trouver des accords permettant un consensus universel.

The topic of the course is very interesting, the readings were important, but some of the reading were based on a book, that I had to purchase. Was a very useful course, but was a little bit tiring, videos with 12 minutes with too much theory but less pratical examples. But was a good experience. I would like to thanks the professors, that made this course.

Course was ok. However, some of questions were not clear based on excerpt from support video. For example, quiz #1 question 7. Course was "general" overview of very important subject matter of Cyber Conflicts. Looking forward to a more specific and detailed course structure. PS: A course concerning Cyberwar in Space would be quite interesting.

A great course if you want to understand the bigger picture regarding cyber players, motivations, enablers, evolution, and options for global cooperation. Some of the content/case studies are dated....and given the pace of this area should be updated with current examples.

The course is really good and you do not need any prior background. Just the will to learn is sufficient. The only thing is that some of the sessions both the tutors are not confidant in what they want to express. But apart from that the course is really good.

nice course. however would have liked more specific examples of cyber conflicts along with how they were resolved to each country's satisfaction ( if there are any such examples to look at ). Thank you to you all for putting this course together.

Very informative course altough the content could be updated to current situations in 2022, altought the actions in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine are still ongoing and to still to clarify the dimensions of cyberwarfare there.
