Watch live: The future of the Iranian cyberthreat

Join a panel discussion with the Atlantic Council analyzing the latest developments in Iranian cybercapabilities and discussing the chances of larger cyberconflict involving Iran.

Iran's interim nuclear deal with the P5+1 negotiators has been hailed at the White House and greeted with ambivalence in the halls of Congress.

But how it impacts Iran in cyberspace remains to be seen. Iranian cyberconfrontations have been among the world's most explosive in recent years, including both attacks from Iran, such as disruption of the US banking sector and against Gulf energy companies, and against Iran, such as Stuxnet and the Wiper worm. 

Should the interim deal disintegrate, what are the chances of renewed cyberconflict in the years to come? And should it hold up, how might that impact Iran's cyber posture? Discuss that and more with experts from The Atlantic Council on Wednesday, April 8.
