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. The Atlantic Council is hosting a discussion bringing 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 also celebrates the launch of Alexander Klimburg’s new book The Darkening Web: The War for Cyberspace.
