Cyberspace ain’t what it used to be. Leaks damage U.S. credibility. North Korea and Iran launch cyber attacks against American companies. Chinese cyber spies steal corporate and government data on a massive scale. Authoritarian regimes tighten control over the Internet. Terrorists exploit Twitter. Cyber crime grows. David Fidler will examine threats affecting cyberspace in peace and war and analyze challenges facing policy responses to these threats.
David P. Fidler is an expert in international law, cybersecurity, national security, counterinsurgency, and biosecurity. He has served as an international legal consultant to the World Bank and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Science Board on bioterrorism, while maintaining his day-time job as a Visiting Fellow for Cybersecurity at the Council on Foreign Relations and is the James Louis Calamaras Professor of Law and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at Indiana University and an Associate Fellow with the Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House.
The Social Justice Student Initiative invites you to the 2nd Annual Human Trafficking Symposium sponsored by the Global Law Program and the College of Social Work.

The Keynote Speaker is from Shared Hope International, an organization that coordinates efforts to improve the response to victims of trafficking in the U.S. and abroad. The workshops will include legislative advocacy, trafficking and the juvenile justice system, on-line exploitation, medical and socio-legal concerns, and much more. Registration required.

Hackers and traffickers enshroud bitcoin, the mysterious new “internet money” that has been embroiled in scandal. Yet the cacophony of alarms about ponzi schemes and money laundering have drowned out bitcoin’s true revolutionary potential.

We’ll discuss how this emerging technology will revolutionize how we: deliver humanitarian assistance, track foreign aid, strengthen local institutions, improve transparency and accountability, and extend banking services to the historically hard to reach.
