Franz-Stefan Gady, senior fellow at EWI, spoke on the "Cyber Policy and Security" Panel at the Institute for China-American Studies' inaugural conference on "China-US Cooperation for Global Security Challenges" in Washington, D.C.

Other speakers on the panel included David M. Finkelstein, vice president/director of China Studies at CNAS & Solution; Anthony M. Rutkowski, distinguished senior research fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology; Senior Colonel Ouyang Wei, director at Center for Mobilization Studies, PLA National Defense University; and David P. Fidler, visiting fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Gady's talk focused on strategic steps that the U.S. and China need to take to address their joint concerns about cyber-espionage and other cybersecurity issues. This would require concrete efforts by Washington and Beijing to engage in open dialogue to build trust and increase cooperation.
