On Thursday, September 24, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh kicks off its three-part fall series on cybersecurity with an illuminating look at cyber warfare in a program entitled: Will the Next World War Start in Cyber Space? P. W. Singer, recently named one of the 10 most influential voices in the world on cybersecurity, will explore the hot button issue of state-sponsored cyber attacks.
