On Thursday September 27, 2012 from 3pm till 5pm the Atlantic Council will host a focused panel discussion on the history of all-source intelligence support to cyber operations. There are important lessons to be learned from this history, and we expect many lessons will be underscored at this fast-paced panel.
The following is from the Atlantic Council invite:
Please join the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative for a panel discussion on the history of all-source cyber intelligence. Togain better perspective on the present and future challenges to cyber statecraft, the Atlantic Council has convened a series of events addressing lessons learned from the history of cyber conflict. This event, the third of the series, will feature a discussion with leading experts in the field of all-source cyber intelligence, who share their thoughts on lessons to be learned from our cyber past in order to prepare for the challenges ahead.
This event will look at early and current practitioners of all-source cyber intelligence to examine several key questions:
What were the early challenges to understanding cyber adversary capabilities and intent? How have these changed over time?
What was the resposne from the US government? From the private sector?
What lessons are there from the earliest days of cyber intelligence that are still relevant today?
Where have we made the most progress and where are there still gaps?
What should we teach incoming analysts to learn from our cyber past?
How was warning of cyber attacks changed over time?
