Given the reality of a densely interconnected information society, much has been written about the possibility that adversaries of the United States, such as terrorists or hostile nations, might conduct damaging cyberattacks against critical sectors of the U.S. economy and national infrastructure that rely on functioning, secure computer systems and networks. However, the possibility that the United States might choose to engage in cyberattacks to serve its own national interests-in cyberdefense as well as in other areas-is rarely discussed in public. Please join The Chicago Council on Global Affairs for a discussion about a framework for thinking about cyberattacks as an instrument of U.S. policy and the critical issues surrounding them.
