ABOUT THE EVENT

Join Dr. Ravi Pendse, vice president for information technology and chief information officer at U-M, for a conversation with Toomas Hendrik Ilves, the president of Estonia from 2006-16. The conversation will cover the intersection of technology and government, cybersecurity, and more — Ilves was in office when Estonia was a victim of a massive cyber-attack, believed to have originated in Russia, in 2007.

President Ilves is renowned for making Estonia one of the most digitally advanced nations through innovative policies that invested heavily in the future. He used his office to further the country’s leadership in digital governance as well as in cyber security. His interest in computers stems from an early age — he learned to program at the age of 13 — and he has been promoting Estonia's IT-development since the country restored its independence. He was born to Estonian refugees and raised in the United States, and holds a BA from Columbia and an MA from the University of Pennsylvania.

Students, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to submit questions in advance, during the registration process, or live in the session.
