Cyber Security and Warfare in the 21st Century: Policy Conference

Fri, Apr 20, 2018, 8:45 am to 5:00 pm

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.  Please register

Cyber capabilities have introduced new dynamics into national security planning, decision-making and strategy. Yet the uses, defenses and ramifications of these tools remain poorly understood. We hope you join us to learn more about these tools and how they impact national security.

The conference kicks off with a keynote on Thursday, April 19 at 4:30pm in Arthur Lewis Auditorium by J. Michael Daniel, President of the Cyber Threat Alliance and former Special Assistant to President Obama and Cybersecurity Coordinator. On Friday, April 20, we host panels of experts and policymakers to discuss cyber norms and governance, defense, and warfare and terrorism.
