Strategic Deterrence in the 21st Century

Admiral Cecil D. Haney, Commander, US Strategic Command, Department of Defense

160223 Haney by The Chicago Council


While the specter of terrorism continues to haunt the national psyche as a persistent danger to homeland security, today’s threat landscape is more varied and complex than ever before. Cyberattacks are increasing in frequency and scope, as last summer’s hack of the government’s Office of Personnel Management underscored, while other countries such as North Korea and China continue to develop and update their nuclear arsenal. How do we prepare for 21st century threats across the nuclear, space, and cyberspace domains? What does modern strategic deterrence look like? Join The Council on Global Affairs and Admiral Cecil D. Haney for a discussion on the latest developments in national security.
