The Legal Assessment of Cyber Attacks on the Federal Republic of Germany with Special Regard to Hack-Back as a Defence Measure
It is therefore necessary to clarify the legal framework for threat prevention so that security authorities can act lawfully and effectively. Applying both doctrinal analysis and statutory interpretation, this dissertation aims to promote a modern understanding of our security law that is prepared for modern threats like cyber attacks. Key findings will include a broader and deeper understanding of regulating digital threats, particularly through active defence measures. By examining cyber attacks and their established threats to democratic rule, this project recognises an evolving digital and international public security law threat engaging core facets of the Department’s research agenda.
