As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

On behalf of the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative, please join us for the next event for the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge NextGen Fund, Muckrakers and news breakers: The role of journalists in cybersecurity on July 23, 2021 from 8:00 – 9:30 AM EST.

The Cyber 9/12 NextGen Fund event series builds on Cyber 9/12’s ability to sharpen the leading edge of the cyber skills pipeline through competition, training, and teamwork by creating connective tissue between individual competitions, connecting Cyber 9/12 alumni with one with experts and mentors, as well as offering educational and professional development opportunities.

This month’s discussion will focus on cyber journalism and the challenging task of covering the cyber beat. In recent years, cyber emerged as a front page news item – especially surrounding high profile incidents like Stuxnet, SolarWinds, and NotPetya.

We are excited to announce that the event will feature:

Andy Greenberg, Senior Writer at WIRED and author of Sandworm
Tonya Riley, Reporter for CyberScoop and previously the lead for Washington Post’s Technology 202 and Cybersecurity 202 
Chris Bing, Reporter for Reuters

The Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative, under the Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab), works at the nexus of geopolitics and cybersecurity to craft strategies to help shape the conduct of statecraft and to better inform and secure users of technology.
