ICDS hosts General Keith Alexander and President Toomas Hendrik Ilves for key discussion on leadership in cybersecurity

After a long delay — at least in some countries — cybersecurity has finally become a top priority for security policymakers. The need for strong defensive measures to counter cyber threats is now being acknowledged by leaders in all spheres. However, strong leadership is necessary in order to coordinate between political and military structures in the public sector, as well as between government and the private sector.

After a long delay — at least in some countries — cybersecurity has finally become a top priority for security policymakers. The need for strong defensive measures to counter cyber threats is now being acknowledged by leaders in all spheres. However, strong leadership is necessary in order to coordinate between political and military structures in the public sector, as well as between government and the private sector.
The International Centre for Defence Studies was honoured to host a discussion on this critical topic — entitled Exercising Leadership in Cyberspace — on 4 June 2013. Moderated by Edward Lucas, International Editor of The Economist, and held under the Chatham House Rule, the discussion was led by President of Estonia H.E. Toomas Hendrik Ilves and General Keith Alexander, Director of the National Security Agency and Commander, United States Cyber Command.
