Event description

Description

In this provocative presentation, Ben Makuch will review the state of cyberwarfare among nation states in 2017. Using new techniques to attack each other and glean intelligence, states are upping the antie in the cybersecurity realm. What does this mean for the average person and how will ti afffect our day-to-day lives? Ben will also present a short clip from his show "Cyberwar", followed by a question and answer session.

Ben Makuch is an award-winning national security reporter with VICE News in Canada. Previously a wire reporter covering parliamentary politics, Makuch was one of the first journalists to make contact with homegrown Islamic State militants fighting in Iraq and Syria. That reporting caught the attention of federal authorities who served Makuch with a production order to hand over all source materials connected to Farah Mohamed Shirdon, an alleged IS fighter originally from Calgary, Canada. Makuch refused and is now applying to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada. Ben is also known for Cyberwar (2016), Vice Essentials Canada (2016) and White Space: Inside the Michigan Militia (2016).
