Russian cyberattacks on Georgia and Estonia, Chinese intrusions into US Government networks, and the creation of a US Cyber Command – have we entered a new era of cyberwarfare? Or is the threat, like the Cold War’s bomber and missile gaps, overstated? Some experts see a potentially catastrophic threat and are adapting nuclear weapons doctrine to cyberwarfare. Other experts see little difference between cybersecurity and commercial computer security. What is real, and what is hype?

Joshua Lin is head of anti-fraud product marketing at MarkMonitor, the global leader in enterprise brand protection. Specializing in internet security, he has worked in technology for over 10 years. He has also worked as a software venture capitalist at Summit Partners, a mergers and acquisitions banker at Lazard Frères, and a China analyst at the National Committee on US-China Relations and the American Enterprise Institute. He received his master’s degree in international relations from Oxford University and his bachelor’s degree from Williams College.
