Video of Event Now Available Here

The Coalition for Cybersecurity Policy & Law presents "Cybersecurity Under the Next President: A Symposium with Cybersecurity Industry Leaders." What will the next administration ‎do to make progress on important information security issues? What impact will the change have on the way the U.S. Government shares vulnerability information; risk management policy for companies and government agencies; how the government shares threat information with companies; or how our privacy is protected?

Please join us on November 15 at the City Club in San Francisco. The Coalition is proud to bring together government and industry leaders for a robust discussion on the future of cybersecurity under the next administration. The Coalition will present several panels of experts who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. It will be an exciting discussion right on the heels of what has been a historic election cycle. 

Complimentary lunch will be served. You are also invited to a cocktail reception immediately following the program. 

City Club of San Francisco
155 Sansome Street, 10th Floor
