A veteran news anchor, Paula Zahn offers audiences an up-close look at today’s top news stories, illuminating the people and forces that are shaping our world. She brings a fresh perspective to major national news and world affairs, while untangling the most complicated issues of the day. Having interviewed the most important newsmakers from the worlds of politics, sports, business, science and entertainment for over two decades, Zahn entertains audiences with a wealth of unique experiences and insights.

Political risk is everywhere, affecting businesses of all sizes and industries. A low budget documentary goes viral, sinking SeaWorld stock. A Manila Mayor’s well intended traffic ordinance ends up disrupting port operations and creating Toyota backlogs across Asia. An airline passenger armed with a cell phone captures United Airlines’ worst passenger moment, reaching 100 million viewers in China. North Korea wages a cyber attack on Sony Pictures, sending the studio off the grid and causing an international crisis. In the old days, political risk involved a handful of industries who worried mostly about whether dictators would seize their assets. Now political risk is everyone’s business—and it includes cyber threats, social media activism, terrorism, and more. Based on a course Zegart co-teaches with Condoleezza Rice at Stanford Business School, this talk examines the mega trends in business, politics, and technology that are supercharging political risk, the top 10 political risks that businesses confront, and what executives can do so they aren’t blindsided.

What are the major forces driving international conflict? How is new technology transforming espionage and warfare? What are the most dangerous places in the world and what should the United States do about them? This talk gives a candid look at the past, present, and future of American foreign policy, examining successful grand strategies that overcame impossible odds, the current threat landscape, and key policy choices.

Cyber threats are growing more prevalent and scary, from Russian hacking in the 2016 American presidential election to the massive theft of corporate intellectual property to the growing danger of cyber acts of mass disruption. Today, there are only two kinds of companies: those who have been hacked and those who just don’t know it yet. How can policymakers, business leaders, and the rest of us make sense of this evolving landscape? Who are the most serious cyber bad actors? Is deterrence ever possible in cyberspace? These are some the questions we explore, with a walk through we should know, what we do know, and what we don't know about digital dangers.

We all know that spies in the movies are different than spies in real life. But how different? And does it really matter? This talk examines the top five myths about espionage and examines how the rise of “Spytainment” is influencing real policy, from Supreme Court arguments to congressional hearings to the use of interrogation techniques.
