Cyber and Global Security

HOUSECS 59.02

Fall 2018

Tuesdays, 6:30 - 8:00 pm; Keohane 4D, 201SEM

Our world is becoming increasingly digitized by the day, but rigorous cyber education for policymakers, international security experts, and strategic thinkers is lacking. This aims to address that shortage.

This course will examine the ways in which cyber is fundamentally reshaping issues of diplomacy, foreign policy, and international security. Incorporating literature on cybersecurity, digital warfare, artificial intelligence, machine learning, international cyberspace norms, organized crime, cyber psychology, modern terrorism, and more, this course will rigorously prepare students to enter the defense, intelligence, and international relations communities with a strong foundation in cyber – understanding everything from social engineering and DDoS attacks to dark web crime, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), and autonomous weaponry.
