First Congregational Church of Westfield’s video- and discussion-based series, Great Decisions, continues on Monday, Feb. 25 with a session dedicated to the current issues surrounding conflict in cyberspace.

Syber conflict is a relatively new and continually developing threat, including the possibility of foreign interference in elections, industrial sabotage and attacks on infrastructure, according to the Foreign Policy Association.

From accusations of interference in the 2016 US Presidential election process by Russia, to knowledge of China’s use of cyberspace as a tool of national policy. Moving forward, combating cyber conflict will require new ways of looking at 21st Century warfare and determining if the United States is fully prepared to respond to these threats.
