Basic cybersecurity literacy is becoming increasingly vital. Cyber attackers, ranging from hacktivists to organized crime networks and even nation states, are targeting vulnerable networks and are frequently successful in stealing funds, breaching critical infrastructure, as well as valuable intellectual property. There is a growing call from the White House, Congress, and industry groups to put in place cybersecurity best practices to better manage the multifaceted cyber threat facing the private sector. However, it is not always clear what those practices should be, or how to implement them in a dynamic, global regulatory environment. This program hosted by the Institute for Defense and Business in partnership with Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business is a spin-off of the IU-IDB Strategic Studies Program (2015 – 2018 SBS) and is designed to introduce participants to the multifaceted strategic cyber risks facing the United States with a special focus on harnessing the benefits, while mitigating the risks, of emerging technologies in the national security context from a non military lens.
