Cybersecurity Expert, Peter Singer to Speak at Deans' Seminar Series on February 12, 2014

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) February 08, 2014 Cybersecurity expert Peter Singer will visit Stevens Institute of Technology on February 12, 2014, to discuss his most recent book, Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford University Press, 2014).

In his lecture, Singer will highlight how modern living, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet, and how the cybersecurity issues that result affect virtually everybody on some level. He will discuss the new questions we face in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to how to protect ourselves from a new type of danger.

Trained at Harvard and Princeton, Singer is a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution and director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative, the world’s biggest think-tank on changes in war and implications for American security. Singer’s research focuses on three core issues: the impact of new technologies on war, current U.S. military defense needs and future priorities, and the future of the U.S. defense system. A frequent lecturer to U.S. military audiences, Singer is the author of several books and articles, including Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century.

The Deans' Seminar Series featuring Singer will be held in Babbio Auditorium at Stevens from 4-5:30 p.m. and is free and open to all Stevens faculty, students, staff and the public. The event is co-sponsored by the Stevens Center for Science Writings at the College of Arts and Letters.

Media wishing to attend this lecture should contact Danielle Woodruffe, Director of Public Relations 201.216.5139 or dwoodruf(at)stevens(dot)edu. For more information, visit the Deans' Seminar Series event page.
