You are cordially invited to a webinar presentation on the topic:
Overlaps between Cyber, Information, and Intelligence Operations
Mr. Jason Atwell
Monday, June 15th
5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
**This event will also be streamed live on Facebook. **
This event is part of The Cyber Intelligence Initiative Series sponsored by The Institute of World Politics.
About the lecture: A discussion of the challenges presented by the increasingly complex environment created when cyber, information, and intelligence operations overlap and collide. This presentation will explore case studies where the lines between various concepts become blurred, complicating the response and implications. Specifically, we will explore recent items of interest from the increasingly contentious relationship between the US, Russia, and China. How will leaders and managers operative effectively in this environment? What are the important aspects of decision-making in these situations? Why is it even important to get a handle on these dynamics?
