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 lunch seminar with Professor Chuck Freilich to discuss his proposal for a comprehensive and actionable Israeli national security strategy in a region and era of change. The strategy Freilich proposes addresses the primary challenges Israel must address - its demographics, the relationship with the United States, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, and its nuclear strategy - in order to chart its national course.
The talk will be moderated by Intelligence Project Director Rolf Mowatt-Larssen. Admission and lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
