On Thursday, April 20, the Strauss Center welcomes Dr. Martin Libicki, Keyser Chair of Cybersecurity Studies at the U.S. Naval Academy, for a discussion on “Cyberwar, Deterrence, and the Escalation Lattice.” This talk will be held at the LBJ School of Public Affairs as part of the Strauss Center’s Brumley Speaker Series.

In his talk, Libicki will begin with an introduction of the role of cyber operations in U.S. national security, discussing their primary characteristics and how cyber is integrated into larger U.S. strategy. Then, he will shift to discussing cyberdeterrence methods and operations, ending with a thoughtful discussion about how we talk about the premise of “cyberwar.”

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required and lunch will be provided. If you have any questions about this event, please contact Brittany Horton at
