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.”
Matthew Bunn will present a Managing the Atom Project seminar entitled "The Nuclear Security Summit and the Four-Year Effort to Secure All Nuclear Material Worldwide" on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 beginning at 9:30am in Bell Hall.
Please note the change in rooms from the standard MTA seminar location.
All are welcome and invited to attend.
