Cybersecurity Discourses and Their Policy Implications

On April 8th, Cyber Collaborative Visiting Fellow, and a finalist for a visiting faculty appointment in the Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies program, Robert Siudak gave a presentation on “Cybersecurity Discourses and Their Policy Implications” to the MIIS community.  He discussed the role of the language and metaphors such as “Cyber Pearl Harbor” in shaping public perception and policy processes on cybersecurity.

Students and faculty alike attended his talk and asked follow-up questions regarding the nature of cyberspace, what skills he would arm his students with as they enter the field, Robert’s intentions to bring diverse and gender-inclusive speakers and source materials, and otherwise.
