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

Robertson Hall
Arthur Lewis Auditorium


Open to the Public, Registration Required

Cyber capabilites 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. To RSVP, please see the registration link above.
