Ransomware attacks crippling hospitals; accusations of Russian interference in Western elections; reported US sabotage of North Korean missiles. No single invention of the last few decades has disrupted the nature of political conflict like the Internet, which is increasingly used as a weapon by actors eager to exploit or curtail global connectivity in order to further their interests. This Atlantic Council discussion brings together leading experts from the industry, government, and academia to discuss the chilling consequences the emergence of cyberspace as a new field of conflict has had on the global order. 


The event celebrates the launch of Alexander Klimburg’s new book The Darkening Web: The War for Cyberspace. Preorder your copy of the book for a special rate here. All books must be picked up at the Atlantic Council on the day of the event.


A reception and book-signing will follow the event.
