Context for Discussion
Three decades ago, the Cold War was still raging and nuclear conflict between states represented the principal threat to international security. With the collapse of the Soviet bloc came a rise in transnational terrorism. The advent and wide availability of the internet, mobile phones, and social media has given rise to a multitude of security challenges that were never envisioned.
We are now faced with cyber-espionage, super-empowered non-state actors, insurgency, and hybrid warfare. In a few short years, technology has gone from teletype messages to mobile phones, social media, personal drones, and bitcoins in our wallet. Picture an aircraft as software with wings, a spaceship as a rocket-propelled supercomputer and navy ships as floating data-centers. The next version of cyberspace will sense human civilization to extraordinary precision, stressing sovereignty, global security and personal privacy.
The dialogue will address cross-cutting issues of cyber, global insecurity, strategic deterrence, radicalization and purposeful interference of critical infrastructure.
