How do nations and non-state actors fight in cyberspace?
Though there is a solid understanding at the tactical and technical levels of what happens between bits and bytes and particular adversary groups, the operational and strategic dynamics of cyber conflict are often ignored. Failing to connect cyberconflict to larger strategic considerations leaves many central questions unanswered: How do cyber conflicts arise? How and by whom are they fought? Who wins and who loses? Is a country "winning" in cyberspace if it seizes more digital hilltops or if it wins the hearts and minds of digital natives around the globe?
With Passcode as the exclusive media partner, this moderated panel discussion will shed light on these questions and cyber operations and strategy beyond the bits and bytes.
