CLTC Seminar: “Complexity and Security: Managing the Tradeoffs” with Herb Lin

October 25, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Room 205, South Hall, Berkeley, CA, 94720

  • This event has passed.


A review of current trends in technology innovation suggests that societal demands for increased functionality conflict with the imperatives of robust cybersecurity. Articulating the nature of this tradeoff is a useful first step (and is the focus of much of this talk), but an understanding of how to manage that tradeoff in a systematic and disciplined manner remains elusive.  This is work in progress, and active audience discussion and engagement will be welcome.

About the Speaker

Dr. Herbert Lin is a senior research scholar for cyber policy and security at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and Hank J. Holland Fellow in Cyber Policy and Security at the Hoover Institution, both at Stanford University. Dr. Lin’s research interests relate broadly to policy-related dimensions of cybersecurity and cyberspace, and he is particularly interested in and knowledgeable about the use of offensive operations in cyberspace, especially as instruments of national policy.

A light lunch will be served. Please RSVP to attend this seminar.
