Cybersecurity: National Events and Policy Dilemmas

May 24, 2017 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for a luncheon discussion with Bill Scherlis,
Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University


The world is reeling from the recent global cyber attack – one of the largest in history.

As the threat of cyber attacks looms, Dr. Scherlis will expose some salient features of the most recent attack, as well as attacks associated with elections in the US, France, and Germany; recent thefts of sovereign wealth; device-based attacks that shut down banking attacks; and attacks on power grids. He will identify some of the policy challenges that have thwarted progress in preventing such cyber attacks.
