The State of Cybersecurity Under the New Administration

Cybersecurity is an increasingly critical issue in our everyday lives. Hacking is easy to conduct and immensely profitable for attackers. Defense, on the other hand, is difficult, reactive, and expensive. Cybersecurity remains a significant challenge for public, companies, and government. 

How will the new Washington administration approach cybersecurity in today's global economy? Will we see more collaboration between industry and government? How will the new administration’s policies affect the state of cybersecurity and our individual rights and liberties? And what can the public do to move the conversation forward? 

Join us for an evening of discussion on the future of cybersecurity under the new administration. We'll discuss evolving challenges, and how industry, the government, and the public can work together to advance the field.
