Intelligence in the Cyber Era


The intelligence arena expanded dramatically and evolved with the global spreading of cyberspace. For example, nowadays, intelligence bodies rely heavily (mostly) on means and capabilities publicly available to anybody instead of being state-monopolized. Also, information is gathered from multiple sources including not only dark-net but open sources used by ordinary citizens, making virtually everyone a potential collector as well as a target.

The traditional espionage, counterespionage, and intelligence have made the jump from the streets to cyberspace. What are the main differences between the traditional methods and the virtual ones, and how does the cyber domain scale the traditional intelligence process? Because even if old practices such as physical espionage are still in place when gathering information, developments such as big data, AI and ML entered the intelligence arena to revolutionize it forever.  

Join this session to explore how cyberspace and cyber capabilities are transforming intelligence. What does Cyber Intelligence mean? How have espionage and counterespionage techniques been digitized? This special event will also touch on network warfare, cybercrime, and how cybercriminals exploit the cyber domain. Are we approaching a point at which countries might go to war over an intelligence operation?
