The future of American warfare is already here.

From the NSA mining the digital data of tech giants such as Facebook and Google to hacker teams playing an integral role in counterinsurgency operations to foreign intelligence agencies launching daily web-based attacks against American corporations and government agencies, cyberspace has, irrefutably, become the “fifth domain” of global warfare.

But just how has the U.S. prepared—and not prepared—for this new global battlefield? And what does this new cybersecurity regime mean for all of us, whose daily lives—from the electric grid to banking to communications—are deeply bound to the Internet?

Join New America in conversation with Shane Harris, author of the new book @War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex, and Peter Bergen for a discussion about America’s military-Internet complex and its implications for our security and our privacy.
