Who Controls The Internet ? Tackling The New Global War


Fake news, the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal, the WannaCry virus: From jihadist propaganda to electoral interference and targeted manipulation (Trump - Brexit - Gilets Jaunes...), to all-out cyber-attacks, the Internet has the power to change and upset political and geopolitical orders across the world. Who are the main actors of this new global battlefield? Russia, the U.S., China...?  How are social sites and our data exploited? Can we tackle the growing cross-border politically motivated cyber onslaught on privacy, security, democracy and freedom?

Jean-Louis Gergorin  and Leo Isaac-Dognin will present their informative and hard-hitting book  Cyber La Guerre Permanente /Cyber The Permanent War  and expose how the digital world has multiplied the capacities and the forms of aggression, abolishing the distinction between war and peace, security and freedom, oligarchies and democracy.   They will reveal the hidden face of digital globalization from Moscow to Washington, from Beijing to Tel Aviv, Tehran, London or Paris, but also from the Silicon Valley to the Old Continent.   They will share the ‘inside stories’, decrypting the forces and the stakes, the new tactics, the risks and the threats, and sketch out future scenarios of the chilling perpetual cyber warfare. 

Alain Juillet, former Intelligence Head DGSE, HEC-Stanford-IHEDN graduate, will provide a few words of conclusion (TBC)

He holds a BA from the University of Cambridge ('12), and a dual-MPA from Columbia University and Sciences Po ('17), focused on technology and defense policy. 
Jean-Louis Gergorin and Léo Isaac-Dognin describe cyberwarfare as the combination of hacking for sabotage, data thefts, and information manipulation through social media that came to public attention following the events surrounding the US presidential election of 2016. Far from being isolated events, such operations have grown to become a pivotal component of state and private sector strategies to take on adversaries and competitors in the 21st century. Among main countries and entities involved, which are the winners and losers? What risks does the future hold? And how can we respond to rising threats and break with the current level of ignorance and apathy? These questions are at the center of the authors' work.
