Intelligence in Flux: From the Cold War to the Present

May 04, 2022 | 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm | National Security Program

About the Event

David P. Hunt, a former senior officer of the Central Intelligence Agency, will discuss intelligence work as a profession in flux as the internet, technology, and cyber capabilities offer both new opportunities and challenges for the national security of the U.S.  He will describe a major operation directed against the U.S. and its proprietary business information, which lasted for 30 years and will draw vignettes from his field tours to illustrate typical Cold War operations and the excitement of collecting significant intelligence from a clandestine source.

Carol "Rollie" Flynn, the President of FPRI will moderate this event.

This event will be held in person, registration is required.
