Political scientist and U.S. Navy veteran Jon R. Lindsay discusses the military implications of cyber weapons Oct. 26, 2016 in the second of three Einaudi Center Distinguished Speaker Series talks on international aspects of the cybersecurity challenge. His lecture was presented by the center’s multidisciplinary Cybersecurity Working Group, whose members come from across the university.

Lindsay argues that we should think about cyberspace as a global institution, not just a technological infrastructure. As conventional war becomes less likely for the stakeholders in this institution, he believes cyber conflict becomes more likely.

Jon Lindsay holds a PhD in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MS in computer science from Stanford University.
