Toomas Hendrik Ilves and Herbert Lin: The Dark Side of the Digital Age
Join us for an engaging conversation with Toomas Hendrik Ilves and Herbert
Lin, who will discuss:
The Dark Side of the Digital Age
The digital age — smart phones, Spotify, laptops, Google, Facebook, Instagram,
all have become a part of our daily lives. Yet this year we have heard and read more
than ever before about the negative side of the digital age: cyber attacks, hacking,
Herbert Lin and Toomas Hendrik Ilves will discuss how cyber has become a daily part of our lives and how it has become even a part of our politics. They will explore the changes that have taken place in the past several years; what hacking really means, what the dangers are, and what we can do to make our lives safer and more secure.
Toomas Hendrik Ilves is the former President of Estonia (2006–2016). He has
previously also served as Estonian foreign minister, member of European Parliament,
and the ambassador of Estonia in Washington. In 2017 Ilves joined Stanford University
as a Bernard and Susan Liautaud Visiting Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute’s
Center for International Security and Cooperation, Stanford’s hub for researchers
tackling some of the world’s most pressing security and international cooperation
problems. He is currently Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Hoover Institution.
Herbert Lin is senior research scholar for cyber policy and security at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and Hank J. Holland Fellow in Cyber Policy and Security at the Hoover Institution, both at Stanford University. His research interests relate broadly to policy-related dimensions of cybersecurity and cyberspace, and he is particularly interested in and knowledgeable about the use of offensive operations in cyberspace, especially as instruments of national policy.
