Fellow Talks

Emerging Challenges in Cybersecurity

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Herbert Lin and John Villasenor

Herbert Lin, a senior research scholar for cyber policy and security at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, both at Stanford University; and John Villasenor, a national fellow at Hoover and a professor of electrical engineering and public policy at the University of California at Los Angeles, discuss emerging technologies and the challenges of cybersecurity. They ask whether the private sector can react more proactively to prevent hacking. They say two types of companies exist in the United States: those that have been hacked and those who don’t know they have been hacked. Lin and Villasenor go on to discuss strategies to prevent or reduce or both the pain of cyberattacks.
