About The Event

​Large scale and possibly devastating cyber attacks against the US have been a significant and growing concern for years. But many Americans, and even many US politicians and government officials, do not grasp the full and complex nature of these risks and our vulnerabilities. 

During his long and innovative career, Paul Williams has advised numerous U.S. government agencies and major corporations regarding cyber risks, economic espionage, insider threats, and the evolving roles of artificial intelligence. 

Williams will address a wide variety of issues, including:

Just how vulnerable is the United States as a nation? 

How serious is the nation-state cyberwar threat to the U.S.? 

How did things become so bad? 

What are the cyberwar capabilities of North Korea, Iran, China, and Russia respectively? 

What could realistically happen to the U.S. if an all-out cyber war erupted with each of these nations individually? 

What is the U.S. Government doing to better protect the nation from the danger of an all-out cyber war?
