Cambridge Forum welcomes former National Security Agency insider JOEL BRENNER as part of their fall series, "How We Live Today."

Joel Brenner explores the chilling future of espionage and warfare in the digital matrix that bounds our world. The threats, he argues, are more serious than acts of identity theft and Wikileaks that we are familiar with. Do the laws and protocols that govern “real” world crime apply to digital crime as well? How can this new world “disorder” be regulated?
