The internet has become the 21st century war zone. President Obama has declared that cyber threats are one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation and that “America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cybersecurity.”
Dr. Adam Segal will talk to Network 20/20 about what the United States is doing to protect itself from cyberattacks. He will also address today’s complicated US-China relations, and how the illicit transfer of intellectual property has become a contentious issue between these two countries. This is perhaps the biggest hurdle to overcome if we are to reach an agreement on what to do before the threat becomes a problem of systemic proportions.
