Jay Healey, Director of Cyber Statecraft Initiative, Atlantic Council

It was emblematic of a lot of the conventional wisdom that's built up around cyber warfare over the past decade or so. In a recent op-ed, Jay Healey challenges some of that conventional wisdom. Healy is director of Cyber Statecraft Initiative at the Atlantic Council. On In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu, he argued not only is deterrence possible in cyberspace, it's been a reality for a couple decades now.
