Anne Neuberger outlines the challenge of emerging cyber threats

Anne Neuberger, Deputy Assistant to the US President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technologies in the White House, outlined to an audience at RUSI the state of cyberspace, current and future cyber trends, and the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) in an increasingly tense geopolitical context.

Deputy National Security Advisor (DNSA) Neuberger held a detailed discussion with Conrad Prince, RUSI Distinguished Fellow and Senior Cyber Advisor, before taking questions from an in-person audience on the opportunities and challenges presented by the development of increasingly sophisticated cyber capabilities.

During the fireside chat with Conrad and over the course of the Q and A session, DNSA Neuberger discussed how the pace of change in cyberspace is creating new demands on Western countries to adapt their approaches to ensure the effective uptake of emerging technologies such as AI.

DNSA Neuberger said:

I greatly value RUSI’s work and appreciated the opportunity for a fireside chat with Conrad Prince, a stalwart example of UK-US partnership.

Reflecting DNSA Neuberger’s address, Conrad Prince said:

The way in which cyber threats are developing presents a major challenge to democracies. Building cyber resilience, particularly in critical national infrastructure, is fundamental. DNSA Neuberger provided valuable insights into how the US is developing policies, capabilities and partnerships to address hostile activity from nation states and criminals alike.
