In this episode, Bart Hogeveen, discusses his programmes at the International Cyber Policy Centre at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.
Hogeveen describes Australia’s role in assisting other governments improve key issues in cyber-security at the international, regional and national levels. He highlights the importance of a coordinated effort between government, industry and civil society in order to maintain the free and open character of the internet. Cyber security issues have increased in prominence due to increased competition worldwide, which has led to difficulties in the creation of an international regime.
States have also developed military doctrine for the cyber domain, with the US and China possessing the most advanced capabilities. In this new war-fighting domain, targets include not only government assets but also the private sector.
Bart Hogeveen is currently in charge of cyber capacity-building programmes at the International Cyber Policy Centre at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Bart has also previously worked at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Department of Defence, as well as a number of NATO and EU missions.
