      EVENT DETAILS
      Richard A. Clarke

      "Cyberwar"— or cyber-anything, for that matter— has always carried a whiff of science fiction about it. But it's not fiction, it's certainly not entertainment, and - as terrorism expert Richard A. Clarke warns us—multiple cyberwars are underway already. The battlefronts range from simple identity theft to the disruption of nuclear programs and medical care. The Pentagon even has a word for this new front line: the fifth domain. That's where ongoing skirmishes for our security as individuals and as citizens are being fought.

      Richard Clark has long experience in American security matters. He's served as a key advisor on intelligence and counterterrorism to three US presidents. In 1998 President Bill Clinton appointed him as the National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counterterrorism for the U.S. National Security Council. His latest book, The Fifth Domain: Defending our Country, Companies, and Ourselves in the Age of Cyber Threats, calls on that long experience to tackle one of the most pivotal battlegrounds in modern security.

      Join us at Kepler's as he shares deep research from boardrooms, government conference rooms, and quantum computing labs— all in pursuit of "cyber resilience", a position of strength against web hacking, election interference, and other boogeymen of the digital realm that are all too real.
