Cyber Conflict and Geopolitics: A Foreign Policy Association's `Great Decisions' Event. This 'Great Decisions' Event will be presented by Jake Mihevc, Associate Dean of Business, Cybersecurity, and Computer Sciences at MVCC.

Cyber conflict is a new and continually developing threat, which can include foreign interference in elections, industrial sabotage, and attacks on infrastructure. Russia has been accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential elections in the United States. China is highly committed to using cyberspace as a tool of national policy. Dealing with cyber conflict will require new ways of looking at 21st century warfare. Is the United States prepared to respond to such threats?

The Foreign Policy Association's "Great Decisions" series is a national grassroots foreign policy discussion program that convenes policymakers, leaders, and scholars across government and industry to bring global affairs to teachers and the classroom. Sponsored by the Upper Mohawk Valley Chapter, United Nations Association. Visit umvuna.org.
