dc.description.abstractThe U.S. private sector is under attack in cyberspace. An increasingly mainstream national security argument calls for amending U.S. law to permit private sector actors, either by themselves or under government supervision, to take so-called モactive defenseヤ measuresラtechnical measures that fall in the grey zone between passive network defenses and aggressive offense. This essay identifies and surveys the relevant laws of twenty countries with large and technologically innovative private sectors. As the U.S. government considers how best to protect U.S. private industry, this "map" informs the options on the table for a holistic review and response to the problem.en_US
