Global Conversations ST. PAUL: Internationally Hacked – World Wide Weapons
April 16 @ 12:00 pm CST/ Free
Cyber conflict is a new and continually developing threat, which can include foreign interference in elections, industrial sabotage, and attacks on infrastructure. Russia has been accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential elections in the United States and China is highly committed to using cyberspace as a tool of national policy. Dealing with cyber conflict will require new ways of looking at 21st-century warfare.
Join us for a discussion with Andrew Borene, Associate Director for Homeland Security at George Mason University Law School’s National Security Institute, on the United States’ ability to respond to growing cyber threats.
