These issues will be explored in the International Student Summit on Cyber Security and Civil Liberties, sponsored by the Cornell School District, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, the National Flag Foundation, and Allegheny Intermediate Unit 3, on Friday, September 17th, 2010. Students attending this event will debate these issues with other students around the globe via videoconference and webcast.
Panelists will include Ms. Kim Zetter, Contributor, Wired Magazine; Mr. Ron Plesco, President and CEO, National Cyber-Forensics Training Alliance; and Mr. Jaanus Kirikmäe, Consul General, Estonia. Panelists will share their perspectives on key cyber security and civil liberties issues. The panel discussion and webcast will run from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM. Afterwards, the students will break into small groups to tackle a foreign policy scenario.
The live webcast will be available on the Council’s homepage. Interested parties are also invited to join the conversation on Twitter by using the #CyberCiv hashtag (hashtags categorize posts relating to a specific topic). Don’t forget to follow the Council @WorldAffairsPgh! We hope you will join us on Friday for this very important conversation.
