The Decision to Attack: Military and Intelligence Cyber-Decision Making

Monday, May 2, 2016 - 5:30pm

The debate over cyber technology has resulted in new considerations for national security operations. States find themselves in an increasingly interconnected world with a diverse threat spectrum and little understanding of how decisions are made within this amorphous domain.

In this timely event, Dr. Aaron Brantly will provide insights into the mechanisms which cause states to attack other states in cyberspace. He will illustrate the power relations between states in cyberspace and the constraints associated with cyber conflict. 

About the Speaker

Dr. Aaron Brantly is the author of the new book The Decision to Attack: Military and Intelligence Cyber-Decision Making. He holds multiple positions in the U.S. Army, including cyber policy fellow at the Army Cyber Institute and cyber fellow at the Combatting Terrorism Center, and is an assistant professor of international relations and cyber at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Dr. Brantly has 10 years of experience working in international development with a focus on information communications technologies and security as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine and subsequently with the International Republican Institute and National Democratic Institute for International Affairs. He has technical experience in multiple coding languages and systems. Dr. Brantly holds a Ph.D. from the University of Georgia.

By invitation only.


About World Policy Institute

A center for global thought leadership, the World Policy Institute is uniquely focused on the crucial but neglected challenges and opportunities of an increasingly interconnected world. We stress innovative, transformative thinking; diversity of ideas; and a global perspective. World Policy Journal, fellows, events, and policy projects provide channels for supporters, thought leaders, decision makers, experts, and citizens to identify, debate, and develop constructive solutions.

This event is part of our new World Policy Security Series, led by WPI fellow Dr. Jonathan Cristol. These near-monthly roundtables will focus on a wide range of themes in international security and be responsive to events in the news. The private, off-the-record discussions will bring in security experts and analysts from academia, the private sector, and government (U.S. and non-U.S.) for clear, nuanced briefings that take you beyond the jargon and behind the headlines. Seating is limited to ensure access and participation.
