Virtual Event | NSPM-13 and the Future of Cyber Warfare

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, May 5. Register for the event here.

National Security Presidential Memorandum-13 (NSPM-13) came into effect in 2018, following a National Security Council-led interagency review process focused on increasing the operational effectiveness of the United States Cyber Command. The order delegated key authorities to the Secretary of Defense to conduct time-sensitive military operations in cyberspace. There is currently a debate underway in national security circles about whether to amend NSPM-13 to restrict the autonomy of the Department of Defense, and by extension Cyber Command. How would such a change impact our ability to counter cyber attacks by Russia and China? Please join Hudson Adjunct Fellow Ezra Cohen for a discussion with expert panelists Alexei Bulazel, JD Work, and Joshua Steinman on the future of NSPM-13 and cyber warfare.
