The Foreign Policy of Technology, with US Cyber Ambassador Nate Fick

Diese Veranstaltung liegt in der Vergangenheit.

The Department of State established the Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy (CDP)to address “the national security challenges, economic opportunities, and implications for US values associated with cyberspace, digital technologies and digital policy”. Its inaugural ambassador at large, Nathaniel C. Fick, is a veteran of the tech industry with in-depth knowledge of these policy matters.

The Bureau comes into being just as the need for what GMF Digital refers to as “the foreign policy of technology” becomes clear. The Biden administration’s National Security Strategy calls for the creation of a new “techno-industrial alliance” as the weaponization of cyberspace, digital authoritarianism and tech protectionism reveal the need for a robust cyber-diplomacy.

Join us for a virtual discussion with Amb. Fick on Thursday, February 2 at 1630 pm CET with GMF Board Member David Ignatius and GMF Digital Director Karen Kornbluh. The panel will discuss the plan for the new bureau, its accomplishments thus far, and how it fits into the United States’ approach to digital democracy, national security, and industrial policy.

The German Marshall Fund of the United States
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is a non-partisan policy organization committed to the idea that the United States and Europe are stronger together. GMF champions the principles of democracy, human rights, and international cooperation, which have served as the bedrock of peace and prosperity since the end of World War II, but are under increasing strain. GMF works on issues critical to transatlantic interests in the 21st century, including the future of democracy, security and geopolitics, alliances and the rise of China, and technology and innovation. By drawing on and fostering a community of people with diverse life experiences and political perspectives, GMF pursues its mission by driving the policy debate through cutting-edge analysis and convening, fortifying civil society, and cultivating the next generation of leaders on both sides of the Atlantic.
