NPWG Meeting 2/28: Guest Speaker Andrew Reddie
Join us as we host Dr. Andrew Reddie of the UC Berkeley School of Information, who will be speaking to us on The Cyber-Nuclear Nexus and Strategic Stability.There are a number of ways in which cybersecurity concerns intersect with nuclear weapons policy--from the potential for cyber attacks to cause escalation to the cybersecurity risks to physical systems. This talk surveys these linkages that underpin fears regarding the vulnerability of second-strike capabilities central to nuclear deterrence. It also pays particular attention to the cybersecurity risks to the often ignored command and control assets that underpin nuclear weapons both here in the United States and across the globe.
Dr. Andrew Reddie is an Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Information where he works on projects related to cybersecurity, nuclear weapons policy, wargaming, and emerging military technologies. He is also currently serving as research director of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity. Andrew is currently a Bridging the Gap New Era fellow, Hans J. Morgenthau fellow at Notre Dame University, a non-resident fellow at the Brute Krulak Center at Marine Corps University, research director at the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, and deputy director at the Berkeley APEC Study Center. Previously, Andrew served as deputy director of the Nuclear Policy Working Group, predoctoral researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Center for Global Security Research, and as an associate at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC.
His work has appeared in Science, the Journal of Cyber Policy, and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists among other outlets and has been variously supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, MacArthur Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Nuclear Science and Security Consortium.
