The Rise of China and the Future of Cybersecurity

(p.333) Chapter 13 Conclusion
China and Cybersecurity

Jon R. Lindsay

Oxford University Press

Among scholars and policymakers there exist fundamental disagreements about the magnitude of risk posed by threats in cyberspace and the trajectory of China’s rise in international politics. It should hardly be surprising that there is confusion where these debates and assumptions intersect. The subject of this book falls at the nexus of these two contentious debates. The interaction between their extreme positions gives rise to four different interpretations of the political character of cyberspace. The chapters in this volume explore cyber issues that span these four different categories. This conclusion leverages their collective insights to explain what accounts for the types of cyberthreats and responses we observe in this important case. Further research is needed to better understand which of these categories are most likely or how activity is likely to shift among them.
