Invitation-Only Forum: Cybersecurity Governance and Policy in a New Government Era
A Private Dialogue on Executive-driven Cybersecurity Management
The American University Kogod Cybersecurity Governance Center, in partnership with Raytheon, will present a private discussion on executive-driven cybersecurity risk management strategies to help address today’s cyber threats.
Participants will include approximately 75 select private-sector CEOs and CIOs, thought leaders and top federal executives.
The Cyber Challenge
Cybersecurity is at the forefront of challenges for today’s government and business leaders. With the potential to exploit a company’s critical information, disrupt business operations, destroy network infrastructure, and cause harm to private citizens, cyber attacks demand leaders' attention. Potential changes to cybersecurity policy from the Trump Administration add another layer of uncertainty to this challenge. The volume, frequency, and sophistication of cyber breaches is increasing at an alarming pace and no organization or individual is untouchable.
The Cyber CEO
Organizational leaders have traditionally delegated responsibility for anticipating and preventing cyber attacks to Chief Information Officers, Chief Information Security Officers, and their supporting technical experts. But this compartmentalized approach to cybersecurity is outdated and insufficient to address the evolving threat. With the potential for cyber threats to exploit a company’s critical information, disrupt business operations, destroy network infrastructure, and cause harm to private citizens, cybersecurity demands the attention of everyone – from the mailroom to the boardroom, and all the way to Capitol Hill.
The Cyber Conversation
Today’s leaders need to be prepared for near-term actions in the cyber domain and possible policy changes for cybersecurity policy in the Trump Administration, as well as the findings in the report on Securing and Growing the Digital Economy issued by the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity. This closed forum will focus on executive-driven cybersecurity risk management strategies including governance and policy actions needed to create a culture of cybersecurity that protects the total enterprise and the United States' critical infrastructure.
Registration for the event is currently closed.
