Regulating Big Tech: Lessons from Around the World
31 March | In-Person
Laying the foundation for the 2023 Niejelow-Rodin Global Digital Futures Policy Forum, this conversation will consider new regulatory models for digital platforms in regions beyond the United States and Europe. The Digital Giants have become a source of global concern, both because of their market power and the “digital harms” to which they give rise. Yet regulation is not easy: democracies worry about the abridgment of free speech; while these Digital Giants are global, standards, market effects, and values are national and local. Are they too big, too complex, and too dynamic to regulate, with any such attempts threatening innovation? While the United States has yet to introduce new laws, Europe, Australia and China have forged ahead, with quite different models.

The Fourth State-of-the-Field Conference on Cyber Risk to Financial Stability will take place on 14 April 2023 at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. The conference is a collaboration between the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs.

Global Perspectives on Cybersecurity
19 April | Hybrid
Columbia University SIPA's Global Cyber Dialogue is hosting a hybrid event in New York City, gathering experts from the United States, Japan, and ASEAN countries.
The event will focus on discussing the geopolitics surrounding the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the impact geopolitics have had on cybersecurity. Geopolitics are a major driver for cyber attacks globally and are an essential topic to consider when discussing the present and future of cybersecurity.
The event will start with a panel on US-Japan Dialogue, with our partners at Keio University, and the US-ASEAN Dialogue, with our partners at NTU and RSIS in Singapore. This event will also feature a speaker from the US Government to discuss the anticipated US National Cyber Strategy.
