(Program Recording Available!) Cyber-attacks have progressed well beyond credit card theft and short-term disturbances. An attack from an unknown enemy could demolish power grids, disable hospitals, and shut down entire financial institutions. The damage can be long-term and unbelievably disruptive.
Many countries including China, Iran, Israel, North Korea, Russia, the United States, and the United Kingdom have active cyber programs which have the ability to cause physical damage to equipment and critical infrastructure. This overview of the recent history of cyber-attacks attributed to nations will include better-known strikes such as the sabotage of Iranian nuclear enrichment facilities, blackouts in the Ukraine, and disruptions to Sony and Maersk. Frightening hacker tools mentioned in the press, such as Sandworm, WannaCry, Petya, Mimikatz, and NotPetya, are identified and their operations described.
Feedback from past courses with Larry:
“Dr. Rudner’s three session course has been the MOST impactful I’ve attended during the past 6 years. His preparation was evident, relevant, and THOUGHT-PROVOKING. Although I had a significant conflict during the third session, I am especially thankful to the Chesapeake Forum who has made recorded classes available so that I can witness the content provided in the last class. The Chesapeake Forum should consider inviting Dr. Rudner back to teach ANY topic he selects.”
“Excellent class! Engaging, knowledgeable, and well-prepared instructor sparked an interest in the subject both during and outside of class. I learned a great deal more than I’d ever expected. Thank you!”
“This was one of the best courses I’ve taken thru Chesapeake Forum. Informative, with a lot of discussion based on the pro and con of innovations and innovative uses of AI. Larry did a great job moderating the discussion on this interesting topic!”
