Welcome and introduction by:

A discussion with:
Nonresident Senior Fellow, South Asia Center
Senior Intelligence Analyst
Cyber Conflict Documentation Project
Join the Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative on April 8, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for a panel discussion on the Iranian cyber threat and the potential for a drastic escalation of cyber conflicts between Iran and the West.
Few other events have so far dominated 2015 as the P5+1 negotiations to limit Iranian nuclear capabilities. Against the backdrop of the negotiations, it is likely that Iran, Israel, and the United States are gathering their strength for a renewal of cyber conflict of the past several years.
The confrontations include attacks both from Iran, such as disruption of the US banking sector and against Gulf energy companies, and against Iran, such as Stuxnet and the Wiper worm.
Should the talks fail, what are the chances of an escalating cyber conflict?
The moderated panel discussion will analyze the latest developments in Iranian cyber capabilities and discuss the chances of larger cyber conflict.
