Digital Espionage, Crime, and Warfare in the Global Glass House

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Joel Brenner
Chair: Professor Stuart Corbridge

Recorded on 12 March 2012 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

A former intelligence insider illuminates the strategic vulnerabilities created by the technologies that run our public and private lives, shriveling privacy, bleeding us of technologies that create wealth, power, and jobs, and laying public and private infrastructure open to crippling disruption – with thoughts on how to deal with it.

Joel Brenner (LSE PhD 1973) is the author of America the Vulnerable: Inside the New Threat Matrix of Digital Espionage, Crime, and Warfare. He is the former head of US counterintelligence and inspector general of the US National Security Agency and practices law in Washington, DC, focusing on privacy and security issues.
