Webcast Recap

Why do nations break into one another's most important computer networks? There is an obvious answer: to steal valuable information or to attack. But this isn't the full story. 

Join us for 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 instrusions, Dr. Buchanan's book showcases the dangers of cyberattacks 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.
