The National Security Studies Program, which prepares students for careers in national security, is holding a two-day symposium, Global-Cyber Impact: Society and World Politics," on Wednesday-Thursday, March 30-31 in the new Science and Math Learning Center Auditorium, west of Mitchell Hall.

The Global-Cyber Impact symposium features panels of top national security experts, and distinguished speakers, including a journalism professor who provides an eyewitness account of the Tahrir Square uprising. Topics range from the Iranian Stuxnet virus centrifuge attack to the Tunisian-Egyptian-Libyan Revolutions, and how cyber warfare and the new media are redefining national security, modern conflict and societal change.

The symposium is open to UNM faculty, staff and students.
