Ramifications of cyber attacks for space and nuclear deterrence

Date November 15, 2012
Time 2:00 PM
Location 1111 19th St., NW, Washington, DC 20036

Deterrence of unwanted actions in space is linked to deterrence in the nuclear and cyber domains. Of the three, mechanisms for deterrence against nuclear attack are most highly developed. Space deterrence mechanisms are a work in progress. Of the three domains, restraints on cyber deterrence are weak. What are the ramifications of cyber attacks for space and nuclear deterrence? Jim Lewis will help guide us through this thicket.

Jim is Director and Senior Fellow of the Technology and Public Policy Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, where his recent work has focused on cybersecurity, space, and technological innovation. Prior to joining CSIS, he served at the Departments of State and Commerce as a Foreign Service officer, and as a member of the Senior Executive Service.

We will convene at Stimson from 2:00 -3:30pm on Thursday, November 15th for Jim’s talk. Stimson is located at 1111 19th St., NW. Our conference facilities are on the 12th floor. Space is limited.

Stimson’s programming on Space Security is supported by DTRA and the New-Land Foundation.
