Countering hybrid threats and digital propaganda
What cyber threats did we encounter during the US mid-terms and the state elections in Germany? Where were we able to successfully thwart intrusions or become aware of propaganda interference? What risks should we be aware of as we look forward to the elections of the European Parliament? How can the U.S. and Germany, and the government and industry work together to counter these hybrid threats? These are a few of the questions we will discuss in the upcoming workshop.
This third Cybersecurity Roundtable on Public-Private Partnerships with Microsoft aims to bring together German and American decision-makers to cooperate on areas of mutual interest in the area of cybersecurity and cyber defense policy.
