About the panel

The panel was part of the U.S.-German Futures Forum, organized by the U.S. Department of State, German Federal Foreign Office, the Bertelsmann Stiftung, and American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) at Johns Hopkins University. The this intergenerational panel discussion allowed participants to “explore how public and private spheres might partner more effectively on the identification, mitigation, and prevention of potentially cataclysmic security threats such as Denial of Service attacks, wiper malware, and ransomware demands, as well as physical threats – including an examination of early lessons learned from the Russian invasion of Ukraine,” the official program explains.
