The overarching question imparting urgency to this exploration is: Can U.S.-Russian contention in cyberspace cause the two nuclear superpowers to stumble into war? In considering this question we were constantly reminded of recent comments by a prominent U.S. arms control expert: At least as dangerous as the risk of an actual cyberattack, he observed, is cyber operations’ “blurring of the line between peace and war.” Or, as Nye wrote, “in the cyber realm, the difference between a weapon and a non-weapon may come down to a single line of code, or simply the intent of a computer program’s user.”
Please join the Intelligence Project for a lunchtime discussion with the Honorable Mike Rogers (R-MI, ret.), former Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), on "Cybersecurity, Espionage, and the 5G Future."
Advanced technologies, increased connectivity, and faster broadband create new opportunities for business and commerce alike. But it also enables the second oldest profession: espionage.
In this seminar, Chairman Rogers will provide students deep insights into how new technologies, including 5G, allow America’s adversaries such as Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea to steal, pillage, and spy, and how Washington can fight back.
