May. 14, 2024 | Tech Companies in Armed Conflict: Risks Arising from Public-Private Partnerships

Private tech companies are increasingly providing both civilians and militaries with digital infrastructure and services utilized during armed conflict. The role of tech companies during wartime is further complicated as governments want to beef up private-public partnerships to protect their domestic critical infrastructure. These trends are presenting tech companies with new operational environments and heightened security risks that could expose them, their civilian customers, and others to significant harms. This webcast explores the thorny question and implications of when a company’s employees and properties are protected against attack under international humanitarian law (i.e., law that governs armed conflict), and when those protections cease.
