Malware, ransomware, stolen credit data, fake online groups – just some of the recent cyberattack strategies. Hackers have hit voting systems in the United States, electrical grids in Ukraine, uranium enrichment facilities in Iran, plus hospitals, universities and major corporations around the world. What’s the worst-case scenario today and in the future? Is the United States prepared? Should there be international rules for cyberwarfare? Get up to speed on cybersecurity and all that you need to know! Reception and book signing to follow.

Advance registration begins at 9:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 28 (Monday, March 26 for Museum members) at mos.org/events.
