About this event

Cyber threats to U.S. economic and national security are increasing in frequency, scale, sophistication, and severity of impact. State and non-state actors conducting cyber espionage are targeting U.S.government, military, and commercial networks on a daily basis. Public and private sector organizations are seeking greater understanding into this threat environment in order to adequately defend critical networks, and intellectual property..  Cyber intelligence can provide organizations with critical insight into an adversary’s intentions, capabilities and activities, as well as the geopolitical environment, enabling executive leadership to make informed cyber security decisions. Panelists will discuss the elements and importance of an integrated cyber intelligence strategy.

Focus Questions 

– What are the key elements of integrated strategic intelligence?
– How do the instruments of a nation’s power enable an organization to develop a successful integrated cyber intelligence strategy? 
– It is no longer sufficient to understand “who” and “how” a cyber attack occurred.  How does an organization gain insight into “why” a cyber attack occurred?
– What do we mean by “Cyber Intelligence”?
– How does Cyber Intelligence contribute to the larger intelligence and national security strategies?

About the lecture series 

The Cyber Intelligence Discussion Series, co-hosted by The Institute of World Politics (IWP) and the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA), will examine the emergent discipline of cyber intelligence as an integral component of organizational cybersecurity and how the public, private and academic sectors are fostering the development of this nascent field. The discussions, to be held each Thursday in October in recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), will include remarks by leading professionals from government, the private sector and academia. IWP and INSA encourage attendees to continue the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag #cyberintel.
