Cyberspace and U.S. Foreign Policy - Report
The discussion on cyber issues can be extensive and varied, but within the context of foreign policymaking, we must reflect on how advancing technology affects the business of statecraft. Just as the evolution of media revolutionized state-to-state politics on the global stage, current developments are reorganizing the way we receive information and perceive subjects – arguably in a much swifter, less noticeable way than ever before. But the cycle of change itself is not new. With each new connective technology, the world has gotten metaphorically flatter – for the average citizen: more accessible; more comprehensible; more immediate; more relevant. In this more connected world, cybersecurity matters more than ever before. Society has greatly benefited as technology has become more advanced and everything has become more networked, but it is also more vulnerable for these very same reasons.
