Can NATO Handle the Emerging Cyber Threat from China and Beyond?




Cyber law expert Professor Peter Sommer of the London School of Economics speaks with Defence IQ about how NATO will take on new cyber challenges. We also take this opportunity to fully dissect the Pentagon's 'missiles down chimneys' approach to cyber attacks on US property. Peter Sommer has examined the risk and has determined that the margins for error are larger than described and that the real answer may simply lie in establishing a system security baseline. Where should we be spending government money? How do we predict and stop the growth of hacker groups like Anonymous and Lulzsec? These are the tough questions that Professor Sommer tackles in this interview.
