The Struggle for Control of the Internet - KEY-203

Misha Glenny, Author and Journalist

The genius of the Internet lies in its interconnectedness. But this is also its Achilles’ heel: everyone wants to take control of it at the expense of everyone else. Our dependency on network systems are growing, but our resilience is not keeping up. Law enforcers, spies, and the military now believe it is central to their security strategies. So do criminals, terrorists and hacktivists. Where does this leave the citizen?

Misha Glenny is an investigative journalist, author and broadcaster. He is one of the world's leading experts on cybercrime and on global mafia networks, and has written about his investigations in the recently published Dark Market.

Other books include McMafia, which was widely acclaimed for its dissection of criminal networks worldwide, and led to a 2009 TED Talk on the subject. He contributes regularly to the Guardian, Observer, The New York Times and New York Review of Books.

He is informally consulted on a regular basis by the British Foreign Office, the US State Department and the British Army. He is also a regular keynote speaker at conferences on organized crime, globalization, south-eastern Europe and US-Europe relations, and in 2012 was a Visiting Professor at Columbia University’s Harriman Institute.
