Using the excellent resource material from the Foreign Policy Association, including its DVD, the Great Decisions Foreign Policy Association Discussion Group program will explore the leading eight subjects that confront the US in 2019.

The sixth meeting topic will be Cyber Conflict and Geopolitics by Richard Andres. Cyber conflict is a new and continually developing threat, which can include foreign interference in elections, industrial sabotage and attacks on infrastructure. Russia has been accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential elections in the United States and China is highly committed to using cyberspace as a tool of national policy. Dealing with cyber conflict will require new ways of looking at 21st century warfare. Is the United States prepared to respond to such threats?

Curious about the Great Decisions foreign policy discussion series? The program meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from February 6 through May 15.  If you have questions, feel free to contact John Warnock.
