Now more than ever, our economic, national security, and personal lives depend on the maintenance of an adequately defended cyberspace. It is of vital importance that we identify, prioritize and operationalize the innovations that will reverse the trend of offensive dominance in this domain. These innovations must operate on an internet-wide scale and impose high costs on attackers while minimizing cost to defenders. This form of leverage will facilitate a broader thinking to maximize the impact of scalable defensive strategies. Join us for what will surely be a fascinating and timely conversation.
This Cyber Risk Thursday, join the Cyber Statecraft Initiative as we engage key experts and stakeholders for a progressive and solutions-oriented discussion on the defensive innovations and methodologies that can helps secure cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure.
