Pizzaseminar am 27.02.2015: Connected Choices: How the Internet Is Challenging Sovereign Decisions

Global leaders are wrestling with the fact that their Internet infrastructures and citizen-facing services are vulnerable to interference and that their economic dependence on the Internet will not permit them to abandon the adoption path they are on. The new data-driven economy has created an intense competition among modern societies for money, power, and control over all aspects of the Internet and the Internet economy. Please join us for a discussion with Melissa E. Hathaway on how the data-driven economy has created discord and competing interests over control and governance of the Internet and its infrastructure.

Zu diesem Themenkomplex fand am 27.02.2015 in Kooperation mit der US-Botschaft Berlin ein PizzaSeminar mit Frau Melissa Hathaway statt:

Melissa Hathaway, former acting senior director for cyberspace at the National Security Council, has joined Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs as a senior advisor to its cyber security initiative, Project Minerva, a joint effort between the Department of Defense, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University. The project explores a wide range of the issues within cyber security from the contexts of international relations theory and practice. She worked on cyber security for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama until August 2009, when she left to establish Hathaway Global Strategies, LLC. She led President Obama's 60-Day Cyberspace Policy Review from February-May 2009. During her time directing the Cyberspace Policy Review at the White House, she assembled a team of experienced government cyber experts and inventoried relevant presidential policy directives, executive orders, national strategies and studies from government advisory boards and private sector entities. Her outreach resulted in more than 100 papers that informed the recommendations. She produced a comprehensive report that contained multiple annexes and 25 near-term and mid-term recommendations. After reviewing this report, President Obama announced in May that cyber security is one of his administration's priorities. Prior to her appointment in February 2009, Hathaway served as cyber coordination executive and director of the Joint Interagency Cyber Task Force within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence from March 2007 to February 2009.
