Announcing a Webinar/Teleconference on
Why “Cyber Pearl Harbor” Won’t Be Like Pearl Harbor At All…
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
2:00 to 3:30 p.m. ET
Exclusively avaialable via web or teleconference
Lawrence Husick, Senior Fellow, FPRI
Edward Turzanski, Templeton Fellow, FPRI
On October 12, 2012, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta
warned that the United States could face a “cyber Pearl
Harbor” as cyber actors launch simultaneous attacks on our
critical infrastructure, in combination with a physical
attack. Mr. Panetta’s warning was both embarrassingly late
and stunningly lacking in both reality and imagination.
Lawrence Husick, FPRI’s co-chair the Center for the Study of
Terrorism, and a patent attorney and self-described computer
hacker, will address the threat that faces the nation, and
why both public and private sector perceptions of the threat
and reactions to it give little hope that we will be able to
avert serious consequences of disruption and violence in the
cyber domain. Mr. Husick’s June 2011 briefing on this topic
was described by former National Security Advisor Robert
“Bud” McFarlane as, “the best I’ve heard from anyone
anywhere.” Join FPRI on October 24, 2012 at 2:00p EDT to
learn more about this critical issue in national security.
Edward Turzanski is Co-Chairman of FPRI’s Center for the
Study of Terrorism and he is FPRI’s first Templeton Fellow.
He has extensive experience in service to the US
intelligence community in the Middle East and Central Asia.
He regularly appears on air, offering commentary on CNN, CNN
Headline News, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and assorted
international media organizations. During the Bush (43)
Administration, he was a member of the U.S. Department of
Justice Anti-Terror Advisory Committee for Region III and
the Department of Homeland Security Port Security Committee
for the Port of Philadelphia.
