The COVID-19 outbreak has not only caused a global pandemic but also what seems to be an unstoppable infodemic. This has provided fertile ground malicious cyber operations, especially in regard to the health sector. To address these developments, the CyberPeace Institute is organizing a series of online events (CyberPeace Labs). The CyberPeace Labs bring together field experts from various sectors with the aim of providing actionable solutions and to facilitate coalitions to address the current challenges to the stability of cyberspace.
