Co-sponsored by the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society, and the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding. Free and open to all. 

Dr. Ravich will discuss her work on cyber-enabled economic warfare, focusing on how adversaries use cyber strategically to attempt to undermine key components of the U.S. economic, innovation, and financial base to weaken it. 

Dr. Samantha Ravich, Chair of the newly established Transformative Cyber Innovation Lab and Principal Investigator on the Cyber-Enabled Economic Warfare project, both housed at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

She also served in the White House as Deputy National Security Advisor to former Vice President Dick Cheney, and as his representative on Asian and Middle Eastern Affairs as well as on Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Proliferation.
