Book Launch: Cyber Persistence Theory, Rethinking National Security in Cyberspace

June 14, 2022 • 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT

Most cyber operations and campaigns fall short of activities that states would regard as armed conflict. Cyber Persistence Theory argues that a failure to understand this strategic competitive space has led many states to misapply the logic and strategies of coercion and conflict to this environment and, thus, suffer strategic loss as a result. Drawing on the authors’ policy experience, Cyber Persistence Theory: Redefining National Security in Cyberspace offers a new set of prescriptions to guide policymakers toward a more stable, secure cyberspace.

Join CSIS for a book launch event on Cyber Persistence Theory: Redefining National Security in Cyberspace. The event will include authors Michael Fischerkeller, Emily Goldman, and Richard Harknett.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
