Seminar: The Politics and Technology of Cyberspace

Tuesday 9 April 2019
Turfmarkt 99
2511 DP The Hague

On 9 April 2019, The Hague Program for Cyber Norms’ new Visiting Fellow dr. Danny Steed will hold a seminar on the topic of his upcoming new book.

About the lecture

Cyberspace is both a deeply technical and a deeply political space with daily reminders at all levels, from small businesses through to national institutions, as to how vulnerable we all are. The events of the past decade have served to show that cyber security is and will remain one of the world’s most pressing security concerns, yet in many ways our understanding of this space remains infantile and prone to hyperbole. In this talk, Danny Steed will discuss his upcoming new book in the attempt to marry a closer understanding of the technical possibilities afforded by cyberspace with the political desires of those actors who must operate within it.

Dr. Danny Steed

About the speaker

After completing his PhD in 2012 Danny Steed was appointed Lecturer in Strategy and Defence at the University of Exeter, where he helped to build the nascent Strategy and Security Institute. His academic specialisms lie in strategic theory, cyber security and warfare, intelligence practices, future technology, and the history of war broadly.

He avidly continues his own scholarship with numerous publications to his name, and continues to lecture at several universities, focusing on cyber security currently. Danny was recently contracted to write his second book, The Politics and Technology of Cyberspace, with Taylor & Francis.

Danny left the University of Exeter to join the Cabinet Office in operational cyber security, where he served for two years in both Operations and Incident Management. His specialism during this time was facilitating confidential information sharing between government and industry as the Project Lead for the CiSP (Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership) initiative. As part of the UK Government Danny has briefed numerous international delegations on these practices, as well as a high number of industry partners within the UK. Danny left public service to join ReSolve Cyber as its Head of Strategy in 2017.
