Cyber Security World Conference 2015 New York City

Cybersecurity has historically been a contentious issue between China and the United States, yet both countries would benefit from strategic cooperation in this area, according to the Capstone Report by the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University. The two global powers are vested stakeholders in an interconnected international system of trade, finance, and other globalized institutional systems. Cyber networks underpin the critical infrastructures of such systems, and cyber protection necessitates the information exchange of threats as well as coordinated efforts in managing defensive capabilities.

Because of the subtlety surrounding cultural values, it is necessary to pay attention to some distinct facets of Chinese culture, especially bureaucratic culture, which Chinese counterparts may reflect. To build productive dialogue, the report suggests, it is essential to understand the differences in culture and communications between the two countries. Unlike the U.S., Chinese strategic culture is characterized by ambiguity, disinformation and secrecy. Through this approach, China aims to achieve its strategic objectives, thereby “winning without fighting.” The way in which an entity shares information reflects its strategic culture, which in China is traditionally dominated by the state. Differences in cultural values and assumptions are usually invisible, often subconscious, and difficult to discern by an outside observer.

Amidst this critical differences, Edgar Perez (, author of Knightmare on Wall Street, will discuss the state of the cybersecurity dialogue between the United States and China at Cyber Security World Conference 2015 New York City ( The forum will provide a platform for information security authorities and innovative service providers to distil their latest research for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprise and government valuable assets.
