  • The Pros And Cons Of Cyber Deterrence

    Cyber deterrence has been thrown out in the public, governmental, and military sectors for the better part of the first half of the decade, stretching into discussions currently in organizations like NATO, and governments worldwide. The theory is simple: “deter someone from doing something out of fear of repercussion or retaliation.” Theory and concept however, are very different premises and conclusions.

  • Personal Narrative: I Am Keri Inman

    I found “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” very difficult to read. I found it difficult to read in a few ways.
