There are some that would lead us to believe that we are on the verge of a "cyber 9/11" or a "cyber Pearl Harbor," but the evidence and facts do not match up with the rhetoric. Episode #2 features an interview with Dr. Brandon Valeriano. He is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Glasgow and the author of several books, with the two most recent ones being "Russia's Coercive Diplomacy: Energy, Cyber, and Maritime Policy as New Sources of Power and "Cyber War versus Cyber Reality: Cyber Conflict in the International System," both co-written with Dr. Ryan Maness.
Dr. Valeriano makes the argument that we are not on the verge of cyber war and demonstrates that nations that do have significant cyber capabilities show remarkable restraint and will continue to do so. We also discuss cyber espionage, the actual capabilities that some nations have and examine notable examples, such as Operation Olympic Games.
