Chinese Cyber Power

Monday, Oct 26, 2015 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Join us for a UMBC Cybersecurity Webinar!

Dr. Terry Thompson, of the UMBC Cybersecurity Graduate Program faculty, will present on the political, economic, military, and foreign policy dimensions of China's cyber strategy and operations.

We will explore:
  • How does cyber fit into China's military strategy?
  • Why is there so much focus on offensive cyber operations?
  • What is the Chinese view of the U.S. response (or lack of responses) to their cyber attacks on U.S. government and industry?
  • Given the large amount of U.S. debt held by China, what is the rationale for cyber attacks that can damage the U.S. economy?
  • Who is behind the strategy and operational planning and execution of China's cyber attacks on the U.S.?

This webinar is a preview of Dr. Thompson's Spring 2016 course CYBR 691 Special Topics in Cybersecurity: "Chinese Cyber Power: Perspectives and Implications."

Please Note: Due to limited time, not all topics may be discussed during the webinar.
