The Hoover Institution's National Security, Technology, and Law Working Group, along with Hoover's Washington, DC office,  host  a discussion on the dangers present on the Internet and how we can do more to prevent cyber-attacks using the most successful defensive strategies.

Hoover working group member and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution Benjamin Wittes, along with senior editor of The Economist Edward Lucas take a look at Lucas' new book Cyberphobia: Identity, Trust, Security and the Internet. Lucas argues that we are moving into a post-digital age where once again, face-to-face communication will be the only interaction that really matters.

This discussion is part of a series of interviews of key national security authors conducted in partnership with Lawfare.
