Speaking Engagement

Terrorists are increasingly likely to launch cyber offensives to achieve their goals. The Islamic terror group ISIS, for example, is trying to develop the capability to disrupt the communication and control systems of critical national infrastructure – such as power generation, aviation and hospitals – to wreak havoc and kill people. Topics addressed included:

  • How serious is the threat of cyber attack from terrorists, and what form could it take?
  • Where are the US, its allies and other countries most vulnerable?
  • What can governments do to prevent such plots, and what special defensive measures should critical infrastructure companies take?
