    A short percentage-based assessment of the qualitative benefit of the recently updated Cyber Law Toolkit published by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO CCDCOE).

    Editor’s Note: The Cyber Law Toolkit is a dynamic interactive web-based resource for legal practitioners and scholars working on international law and cyber operations.

    The Toolkit consists of a growing number of hypothetical scenarios, each of which contains a description of cyber incidents inspired by real-world examples and accompanied by detailed legal analysis. The aim of the analysis is to provide thorough examination of the applicability of international law to the diverse scenarios and related legal issues. The Toolkit was launched in May 2019 in Tallinn, Estonia, and is available free of charge.


    The Cyber Law Toolkit project is currently supported by the following partner institutions: the Czech National Cyber and Information Security Agency (NÚKIB), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE), the University of Exeter, United Kingdom, the U.S. Naval War College, United States, and Wuhan University, China.

    The Cyber Law Toolkit

    The Cyber Law Toolkit, an established go-to resource for professionals and scholars working on international law and cyber operations, initially introduced its annual update on September 23, 2021. The Toolkit is updated in an ongoing manner, with the current iteration representing the 2021/2022 update. The Toolkit‘s core assets are hypothetical scenarios, each of which contains a description of realistic cyber incidents inspired by real-world examples and accompanied by detailed legal analysis written in an accessible language. 

    New scenarios, a new functionality providing an overview of national positions on international law in cyberspace, and several new real-life incidents are among this year’s additions introduced at the CyberCon conference hosted by the Czech National Cyber and Information Security Agency (NÚKIB).

    The new scenarios include and contemplate malicious cyber operations against medical facilities and vaccine research, explore international law implications of misattribution in cyberspace, consider the differences between means and methods of warfare in cyberspace, and analyze the legal ramifications of internet shutdowns.

    The Toolkit contains a wholly new feature, which provides a customizable overview of all available national positions on international law and cyber operations. Users can search for specific countries or compare different States’ views on a diverse range of topics such as sovereignty, non-intervention, or due diligence.

    To keep pace with the recent developments in the cyber security domain and remain a relevant source for practitioners and scholars alike, the Toolkit is updated regularly on the basis of internal research and through external submissions.

    Current Example Scenarios: 25 Hypothetical Scenarios

    Each scenario contains a description of cyber incidents inspired by real-world examples, accompanied by detailed legal analysis. The aim of the analysis is to examine the applicability of international law to the scenarios and the issues they raise.

    Real World Examples (2007-2021)

    Shared examples present instructive information on real-world incidents that have inspired the analysis (and scenarios) highlighted in the Cyber Law Toolkit project.
