Professor Jason Healey, a Senior Research Scholar specializing in the political dimensions of cyber space, has written an opinion piece for the Passcode section of the Christian Science Monitor.

In “Even if flawed, cybertheft deal with China is win for Obama,” Healey argues that critics of the recent China-US deal against commercial cyberespionage have overlooked the stronger position the US will gain to confront China over the issue. Now that the US has President Xi Jinping’s personal commitment against commercial espionage, it must be sure to shame China if it falls short.

Professor Healey’s thoughts on the cyber space have been published in over a hundred articles and essays by the Atlantic Council, National Research Council; academic journals from Brown and Georgetown Universities; the Aspen Strategy Group and other think tanks. He is editor of the first history of conflict in cyberspace, A Fierce Domain: Cyber Conflict, 1986 to 2012 and co-author of the Cyber Security Policy Guidebook by Wiley.
