Cyberspace is both a deeply technical and a deeply political space with daily reminders at all levels, from small businesses through to national institutions, as to how vulnerable we all are. The events of the past decade have served to show that cyber security is and will remain one of the world’s most pressing security concerns, yet in many ways our understanding of this space remains immature and prone to hyperbole. In this talk, Danny Steed will discuss his upcoming new book, The Politics and Technology of Cyberspace, which provides both a grounded technical examination of cyberspace's security aspects, and an exploration of the political desires of actors seeking to exploit it for strategic gain.
