For Immediate Release
Technology and Security has launched a new podcast series by the same name. Episodes will be available at
Users will need iTunes to download the new podcast series.
While having an audio version is somewhat of an experiment for us, there have been enough requests for a podcast series that we decided to go ahead and make the programs available.
Some of the podcasts will be based directly on our well-regarded blog, Technology and Security. Others will be available only in podcast format.
Technology and Security aims to relate the importance of technology to national security and national power. The blog’s author, Dr. Stephen Bryen’s recent books include: Essays in Technology, Security and Strategy and the forthcoming Technology Security and National Power: Winners and Losers.
America has long enjoyed being the world’s technology leader. But in some sectors that is starting to change as American technology increasingly has gone off shore, fueling China’s rapid growth and military expansion, and as other countries have closed the technology gap with the United States. These changes and shifts represent a challenge for the future, and for the most part America’s guard still remains down. Should this persist, America will find its ability to maintain its standard of living and safeguard its security increasingly difficult.
Technology and Security explores these issues and more. Part of the blog’s focus is on cyber security, an area where adversaries are having their way harvesting American technological information and undermining governmental and infrastructural functions. Technology and Security helps to explain why this is happening and proposes ways to cope with the situation or strengthen the protection of vital computer networks.
