Global Threats In An Increasingly Machiavellian
World: What's At Stake... Everything
The dynamics of change as they relate to
culture, economics, population diversity, technology, wealth creation and national
security require serious evaluation in protection strategies heretofore not
considered by individuals, corporations or even nations.
The focus of this presentation will be to
address the potential threat to our security in the wake of the rise of Chinese
Nationalism and Global Projection. This presentation will begin with the
development of the background necessary to understand and bring to the
forefront the magnitude of the threats today and will continue with a review of
some of the major vulnerabilities and conclude with an examination of the
potential risks if both the threats and vulnerabilities continue to be ignored.
