Adam Segal "Cybersecurity and American Preparedness"

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.
