WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL: The Cyberthreat

September 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

$7

CONVENERS.ORG MEMBER EVENT

Why have we been unable to defend against recent cyber attacks, such as those from North Korea and Russia? What is being done to prevent and protect us from potential future threats? The “WannaCry” attack and most recent “Petya” attack have caused damage on a global scale, and have even taken lives. Further, it appears such attacks have made use of stolen NSA cyber weapons previously distributed on the dark web and available for sale.

Nicole Perlroth, cyber security reporter for The New York Times, will discuss these attacks and what to expect for the future of cyber warfare.
