Cybersecurity from China’s Perspective will be streamed live from this page on Thursday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m. Please check back on the day of the event for the feed or join us in person by registering here.
With accusations of digital espionage and commercial hacking flying, Washington and Beijing met this past September to discuss potential solutions. The world's premiere cyberpowers reached an agreement — though some experts were quick to point out several shortcomings.
There is little reason to think that cyberthreats in 2016 will be any less numerous. Will Beijing really be able to hold up its end of the deal? Can China rein in its hackers? Will China and the West forge rules of engagement in the Digital Age?
Join Passcode and The Mary Baker Eddy Library for a discussion that will address these questions and shed light on the status of cyber-relations between the US and China.
