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 the first seminar of the semester, “Intelligence Challenges for the 2020's," where we will take a look ahead at the key trends, issues, and technological and societal changes that will drive the evolution of intelligence in the next decade.
The panel discussion will serve a broad examination of how changes in society, technology and geopolitics will drive the evolution of intelligence methodology, organization, and role in addressing the key challenges of our time.
Come ready to debate and discuss questions such as:
What are the challenges intelligence leaders must address to best serve policy-maker requirement and the expectations of the societies they serve
How must intelligence services adapt to the changing world, and what must remain constant?
What major issues can we anticipate in the 2020's?
RSVP required. Lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
