The Agenda with Steve Paikin: Zbigniew Brzezinski: The New Rules of Cyber-War
The Agenda, TVO (TV Ontario) | April 9, 2013
Zbigniew Brzezinski (http://ww3.tvo.org/search/apachesolr_search/brzezinski) (http://ww3.tvo.org/search/apachesolr_search/brzezinski)
… co-chairs the Center for Strategic and International Studies Advisory Board and was National Security Adviser to former President Jimmy Carter.
Brzezinski is hyping all this fear about catastrophic hacking – cyber attacks – via the Internet.
He implies that infrastructure is vulnerable to cyber attacks, but this would depend on these installations being attached directly to the Internet, which I doubt.
By the way, that doesn’t add credibility to the U.S. government’s policies on the Internet and its desire to prevent cyber attacks.
Brzezinski describes how private technocrats run government:
“There are lots of other agendas I’m prepared to discuss with foreign policy makers.”
The main point about cyber attacks: he wants to
…find ways to very promptly identify the source of the attack …
… have to improve our ability to determine almost instantly who is the source of the attack …
Even though Brzezinski doesn’t say it explicitly, I think his fear and hype is meant to justify very tight biometric identification controls on everyone’s access to the Internet.
