The Wilson Center is hosting a live taping of The War on the Rocks podcast with editor-in-chief Ryan Evans, on the subject of Wilson Center Global Fellow Dr. Ben Buchanan's latest book, The Cybersecurity Dilemma: Hacking, Trust and Fear Between Nations. Learn how nations use hacking not just for offensive purposes, but also for defensive ones. Using case studies of sophisticated network intrusions, Dr. Buchanan's book showcases the dangers of cyber attacks and discusses their impact on national policy. Dr. Buchanan introduces a new approach that explains how cyber conflict can start, even if no state desires such conflict - an idea of interest to policymakers and scholars alike.
