GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany – Demonstrations organized via social media. Attacks on computer systems across the region. Technology moving too fast for leaders to hold pace.
These and other discussions of a world moving deeper into the computer age made up the bulk of a workshop titled “Security in the Cyber Age.” The George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies conducted the workshop here Oct. 29-Nov. 1 with its alumni from Central Asia.
This workshop included speakers from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Cologne, Germany-based Cybercrime Research Institute, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Centre of Excellence in Tallinn, and the Lithuanian ministry of national defense, in addition to Marshall Center faculty.
