Title: Applying Kahn and Schelling Cold War principles to Cyber
Biography: Jason Lang
Nuclear deterrence, historically conceptualized through mutual assured destruction, has been the foundation for the delicate balance of power among nations. Advancements in technology in the last two decades since the Cold War, have changed the landscape significantly and has forced a relook into how equilibrium can be achieved. Within this new environment, the question becomes how to achieve ambiguity, through both offensive and defensive non-kinetic means, towards a steady-state of equilibrium. To truly understand the impact of technological advances and a way forward, it is imperative to revisit the original concepts of Kahn and Schelling on nuclear deterrence theory, but through a modern lens.
