Please join us on Friday, November 18 at 9:00AM at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s offices in Washington, DC, as the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity and Bipartisan Policy Center will present a discussion on innovative approaches to upcoming challenges in cybersecurity.
Following recent headlines on government and corporate data breaches and an election cycle filled with unprecedented cybersecurity concerns, from hacked email accounts to threats of vote tampering, the American public’s awareness of cyber threats has never been higher. But can that attention be mobilized now to make progress in updating the nation’s cyber strategy?
With the many challenges facing the new administration, a unique opportunity presents itself to both act quickly and decisively while also providing innovative ideas that could build an effective plan to prevent, respond to, and recover from increasingly prevalent cyber risks and vulnerabilities.
Expected panelists include Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX); Michael Daniel, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator; Jamie Gorelick, Former Deputy Attorney General and Partner, WilmerHale; Steven Weber, Faculty Director, UC Berkeley Center for Long Term Cybersecurity; and Betsy Cooper, Executive Director, UC Berkeley Center for Long Term Cybersecurity. The event will be moderated by Erin Kelly, Congressional Reporter for USA Today.
