The Workshop on Cybersecurity Incentives (WoCI) will discuss the history, present, and future of societal mechanisms and institutional designs that leverage incentives to bring an acceptable balance between security and other priorities in cyberspace. The agenda will focus on illustrating cyberspace as an ecosystem of actors and discuss their roles and responsibilities, and the dynamics of their interaction and interconnectivity. Scholarship in law, economics and other fields within the behavioral sciences inform stakeholders about how markets, incentives and legal rules affect each other and shed light on determinations of liability and responsibility. This is considered essential to achieving efficient accountability and a sound public-private order in cyberspace. Considerations of what is technologically possible and feasible will be included. Ongoing debate and research in this area will be presented in practical terms allowing for participants to immediately realize implementable options for governing cybersecurity at the enterprise and national levels. The workshop will discuss the legal, economic and technological facets of the topics presented.
