In celebration of October’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the Coalition for Cybersecurity Policy & Law, the Cyber Threat Alliance, and The National Security Institute at the George Mason University Antonin Scalia School of Law will host the inaugural "CyberNextDC: Privacy. Partnerships. Protection." policy day in Washington on Wednesday, October 25th, 2017.


In an increasingly interconnected world with constantly evolving cyber threats, promoting policies to strengthen the digital ecosystem is critical. Such policies include promoting a risk management approach to protecting networks and systems, adopting new technologies to protect from the latest malicious cyber activity, and actively engaging with government and industry partners to share information.

This day-long event will feature prominent members of the cybersecurity community as well as congressional and administration leadership who are actively engaged in cybersecurity policy issues. The event will also feature top policymakers, leading industry practitioners, and other experts discussing the current state of cybersecurity, fostering critical discussions among participants, and identifying forward thinking approaches to improve cybersecurity.

Among the many distinguished speakers are White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Rob Joyce, Senate Homeland Security Chair Ron Johnson, and Palo Alto Networks CEO Mark McLaughlin. 

Attendees should come away from the event with useful, innovative, and actionable information to improve their cybersecurity practices. The event will wrap up with a rooftop social hour.
