Drawing on his extensive knowledge of history and defense strategy, the speaker will present a cogent analysis of what is truly new about the “new media,” and what is simply a recasting of human warfare in contemporary forms.
The history, present and future of cybersecurity and cyberwarfare will be presented in a lively, informative presentation, encouraging audience questions.
