Alexander Rudolph is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Carleton University and an expert on Canadian cyber policy. His research examines the grand strategy, conflict, and competition in cyberspace and how states attempt to maintain their monopoly on violence in the digital domain. He applies sociology, information security, and open-source intelligence methods to investigate the strategic thought and doctrine of cyber conflict and how it influences the creation of cyber force structures in military and intelligence organizations. He obtained his MA in Political Science at Carleton University, where he wrote his thesis on Canada’s emerging offensive cyber operations posture following Strong, Secure, Engaged. His methods improve existing methods of analysis of cyber conflict by introducing hacker-informed perspectives on cyberspace and cyber conflict.

In addition to his academic work, Alex is an American-Canadian ex-pat and a frequent contributor to Canadian and international discussions on cyber conflict. He has more than 10 years of experience working for non-profits in the public education and advocacy sectors as a project manager and analyst. Recently, he has worked as a researcher and market analyst in defence consulting and presently works in Ottawa as a policy advisor and consultant. 

As one of Canada’s leading Canadian Armed Forces cyber defence policy researchers, Alex created Canadian Cyber in Context, the first newsletter dedicated to following updates and providing in-depth analysis of Canadian cyber defence.
