Unleashing the Dogs of (cyber) War

  • Ed Skoudis
  • Monday, February 18th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

With the onslaught of recent headlines containing revelations of nation-state activity in computer attacks, a lot of people are wondering: What the heck is going on? Although controversial in some quarters, the militarization of cyber space proceeds apace. Some think that military operations in cyber space are impossible, impractical, or just plain evil. In this lively and hard-hitting presentation, Ed Skoudis will analyze the trends and look at where such activities may be heading. We'll then focus on some of the ramifications for the hacker community. How could cyber military action impact you and your hacking research? What steps should hackers take to prepare for a significantly more militarized cyber space? We'll discuss those issues, and many more.
