July 24th 2017 - 15:47

On Monday, July 17 in Washington, D.C., the Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative of the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security hosted a panel on cyber space as a new field of conflict. HCSS's Cyber Policy and Resilience Program Director Alex Klimburg joined this panel, together with Laura Galante, Jane Holl Lute, and moderator Tal Kopan.

This panel examined the consequences of the battle for cyberspace among nation states and non-state actors alike, threatening not only our personal data but human lives, global stability, and the fundamentals of the Internet as we know it today. The event also marked the launch of Klimburg's book "The Darkening Web: The War for Cyberspace". More information about the event and the video recordings can be found here.

Alexander Klimburg is Director Cyber Policy and Resilience Program at HCSS, and an associate (and former research fellow) of the Science Technology and Public Policy Program and Cyber Security Project at the Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center.

Mr. Klimburg is also a nonresident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council, and an associate fellow at the Austrian Institute of European and Security Policy.
