This book presents a framework to reconceptualize internet governance and better manage cyber attacks. It examines the potential of polycentric regulation to increase accountability through bottom-up action. It also provides a synthesis of the current state of cybersecurity research, bringing features of cyber attacks to light and comparing and contrasting the threat to all relevant stakeholders. Throughout the book, cybersecurity is treated holistically, covering issues in law, science, economics and politics. This interdisciplinary approach is an exemplar of how strategies from different disciplines as well as the private and public sectors may cross-pollinate to enhance cybersecurity. Case studies and examples illustrate what is at stake and identify best practices. The book discusses technical issues of Internet governance and cybersecurity while presenting the material in an informal, straightforward manner. The book is designed to inform readers about the interplay of Internet governance and cybersecurity and the potential of polycentric regulation to help foster cyber peace.

In The Press

''Interdisciplinary' is often overused to the point of being meaningless, but Shackelford truly demonstrates the real value of practical, truly interdisciplinary thinking that is required to confront the escalating challenges of international cyber risks. Piecemeal approaches of only policy, technology, or geography are inadequate to the challenge, and Shackelford's background and expertise shine through in timely and useful guidance for the many of us who deal with these challenges every day.' Brad Wheeler, Vice President for IT and CIO, Indiana University
