Jennifer Buckner: Cyber Operations: A Military Practitioner’s Perspective

October 14, 2020

4:45 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.



Issues related to cyber operations influence all aspects of our professional and personal lives, public safety, and national security. Jennifer “Jen” Buckner (brigadier general, US Army, retired) presents a “practitioner’s perspective” on US Cyber Command and the military’s evolving role in protecting and defending the United States in cyberspace.

Drawing from her extensive and recent experience—including command of the Army’s first Cyber Brigade, training and educating cyber forces, and leading Joint Task Force Ares, the US government interagency task force to counter ISIS in cyberspace—Buckner will offer insights on how cyber operations inform and accelerate national security policy development, international cyber norms, and integration with combat operations and traditional forms of military maneuver.
