Building off the success of last year's event and 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 "CyberNextDC" policy day in Washington on Thursday, October 4th, 2018.

 

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 Rapid7 CEO Corey E. Thomas, Tenable CEO Amit Yoran, Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security’s National Protection and Programs Directorate Chris Krebs, and Deputy Assistant Attorney General for National Asset Protection Adam Hickey.

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.
