Don't miss: Ford Policy Union features cyber 
security debate

A debate on the effectiveness of international agreements on cyber security will be presented from 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday in the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, Annenberg Auditorium.

Professor John Steinbruner, a noted international security scholar, is scheduled to argue that the U.S. interest in prohibiting destructive attack on critical infrastructure assets is evident and urgent. Steinbruner, director of the Center for International and Security Studies School of Public Policy, University of Maryland, also maintains that direct multilateral negotiations are necessary to prohibit such attacks.

The Ford Policy Union event also will feature Steven Bucci, a former military officer and government official. Bucci, director of the Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies, The Heritage Foundation. He is scheduled to argue that only after the U.S. establishes how to best address cyber security from the standpoint of purely American interest, should the U.S. push for international agreements on cyber security.

The event is free and open to the public. It is preceded by a reception at 5 p.m. in the Great Hall at the Ford School. The public can join the conversation on Twitter at #FordPolicyUnion.

The International Policy Center organizes and hosts the event. It is co-sponsored by the International Policy Students Association.
