Joseph Neuhaus Quoted on Draft Protocol Addressing Cybersecurity Measures in International Arbitration in Law360May 3, 2018
Joseph Neuhaus was quoted on a draft protocol addressing cybersecurity measures in international arbitration in a May 3 Law360 article titled “Cybersecurity Protocol Helps Address A 'Defining Challenge.'” Joseph said he anticipated the protocol—a draft of which was released by a working group established by the International Council for Commercial Arbitration, the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution and the New York City Bar Association—would have a lasting impact on international arbitration. Its effects, he noted, could be much like that of a 1996 UN Commission on International Trade Law publication on the organization of arbitral proceedings. Joseph highlighted the comprehensive role laid out for the tribunal as a particularly significant part of the draft protocol. “It unambiguously says that the tribunal has the authority to determine what security measures are going to be required and it says that the parties cannot agree on cybersecurity measures without getting the tribunal's approval,” he said.
