#30 Cunningham on Cyber



During this episode, Dr. Chase Cunningham discusses the evolving nature of cyber. He asserts that cyber is a key component of national policy, national capability, and warfare. We touch on the concept of a perimeter and why he asserts the “perimeter is dead.” Additionally, Chase recounts examples of COVID-related disinformation and deepfake technologies which have ramifications both in national security and corporate security. The conversation shifts gears into a discussion about Cynja, which is a program designed to educate and protect children from cyber-related threats–including polymorphic malware, DDOS command and control, antiviral signatures, and cognitive overload.
