Information technologies play a fundamental role both in civilian and in military systems. Vulnerabilities caused by malfunctions, and errors in the design or implementation of digital systems, are exploited for attacks on them, with consequences that sometimes also result in physical damage. The level of insecurity and uncertainty that this situation entails is particularly dangerous, especially in relation to nuclear weapons, and can have important negative repercussions on crisis management and strategic stability. This webinar will address the issues related to Cyber-security of Critical Infrastructures and the implications of Cyber and Space dependency on Nuclear Assets and Strategic Stability.
