Richard Clarke, American national security expert, novelist, and former government official
In this episode of the podcast, Steve has a conversation with Richard Clarke about how the threat of cyber war has evolved over the past decade, the politics of cybersecurity, and the need for accountable leaders in the face of evolving threats and emerging technology such as ransomware and artificial intelligence.
Richard is one of the world’s leading experts in security, cyberspace, and terrorism. He served in the Whitehouse for Reagan, both Bushes, and Clinton – appointed by Clinton as the National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counterterrorism.
Richard has written nine books including the national #1 bestseller, Against All Enemies, Cyber War: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It, and his 2019 book The Fifth Domain: Defending Our Country, Our Corporations and Ourselves in the Age of Cyber Threats.
All organizations are potentially part of the cyber war and must be proactive about protecting their assets and stakeholders. I hope you find insights and encouragement in this conversation with Richard to help you keep up the good fight and be the leader that your organization and our country need you to be.
