On Feb. 26, Dr. Michael H. Hoeflich, the John H. & John M. Kane Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Kansas, led a discussion on the ethics of cyber defense in the Arnold Conference Room of the Lewis and Clark Center on Fort Leavenworth. During his presentation Hoeflich discussed the ethical use of cyber weapons like Stuxnet, cyberattacks on electoral systems, and the limited options available to deter cyber attacks. (Watch the lecture on the CGSC Foundation’s YouTube channel.)
Dr. Hoeflich is the director of the new master’s degree program in Homeland Security Law & Policy at the University of Kansas. He holds a juris doctor degree from Yale Law School and a Ph.D. from Cambridge University, and is an expert on cyber law, policy and the integration of the private and public sector.
This was the seventh presentation in the series, which is co-hosted by the CGSC Foundation’s Simons Center with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff School (CGSS). The InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series is an extracurricular, interagency topic-focused series that is intended to help enrich the CGSS curriculum. The CGSC Foundation and the Simons Center have received support for all brown-bag lectures in academic year 2018 from First Command Financial Services in Leavenworth, Kansas. The presentations are scheduled each month, and a schedule for future InterAgency Brown-Bag Lectures can be found here. The next lecture is Apr. 3 and will feature a presentation on the Ambassadorial expectations and country team operations.
All lectures in the InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series are free and open to the public. As the series moniker states, the lecture series is conducted in the traditional “brown-bag lunch” format. – Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunches into the conference room. Members of the public coming to the lectures from off-post will need to add extra time to check-in at the Fort Leavenworth visitor center. – For gate information, see the Fort Leavenworth homepage.
