October is Cybersecurity Month, so the Havighurst Center has chosen The Red Web: The Kremlin's War on the Internet by Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan about the struggle between Russia’s
digital dictators and the new online revolutionaries. The book explores how Russian political officials initiated an online-surveillance state for repression, control, and geopolitical warfare. Published before the 2016 elections, the new paperback edition includes a chapter on the hacking operation. Free book to the first 10 students who sign up!
Then join the Havighust Center for a Skype forum with Soldatov and Borogan, the two Russian investigative journalists and authors of the book. They will Skype with us live from 4pm to 5pm to talk about their findings and answer any questions you might have. This event is sponsored by the Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies, this event is as timely as it gets.
