Technology Breakfast Series: underpinning the national interest

National Security College | Professional course

Summary

Conducted over four consecutive Fridays, this program considers the national security impacts, challenges and opportunities posed by new and emerging technology. Technological change can provide new tools for national security operators, but also create new security vulnerabilities, alter the political and social context in which the national security community must operate, and engender strategic competition between states. This series aims to help you understand existing and evolving technology so you can contextualise its impact on national security policy.

Past presenters for this program include: Dr Lesley Seebeck, Dr Zac Rogers, Dr Samantha Hoffman and others.

“So thought provoking - provided me with the starting point for so much reading and investigation that I’d like to proceed with. Really opened my eyes to the impact of so many technologies. Fascinating and terrifying!”
