Securing Our Digital Future: America, Asia, and Cyberspace
The media report nearly every day on sophisticated cyber attacks on government or massive thefts of sensitive corporate data, and everyone is increasingly vulnerable to cyber attack, be it phishing, identity theft, or other scams. The Internet, depository of everything we know about the world today, was created to share information, not protect it, and security experts have been playing catch up ever since. It’s not just the U.S. at risk; Asia is home to some of the world’s most connected societies – in Korea, Hong Kong, China, and Japan – and even more vulnerable to attacks, from both within and without.
How are the tools and tactics of cyber-attacks, and cyber defense, evolving over time? Given limited government regulation and enforcement, how can businesses and consumers best protect themselves? How can government and the private sector in the U.S. and in Asia better work together to defend against attacks and to share information about threats, internationally as well as domestically?
This event is the first in a two-part ASNC program series on cybersecurity in Asia. Part two will focus on the cybersecurity relationship between the U.S. and China (Spring 2015). More details soon!
