On March 4, 2014, the Georgetown University Institute for Law, Science and Global Security will host the fourth annual International Engagement on Cyber conference. This gathering promotes dialogue among policymakers, academics, and key industry stakeholders from across the globe, and explores the worldwide community’s increasing interconnectivity in this domain. The 2014 event will include four expert panels, followed by audience participation, on: (1) National Cyber Strategies, (2) Internet Governance, (3) National Security in Cyberspace in a Post-Snowden Era and (4) The Development of International Norms for Cyberspace. Lunch panel discussions will focus on Cybercrime and Public-Private Partnership: Protecting Critical Infrastructure.
Drawing on the experience of government practitioners, industry representatives, and academic scholars, this event brings a multidisciplinary and international approach to the challenges in cyberspace from technical, corporate, legal, and policy perspectives in both the United States domestic and international realms. Participants of diverse disciplines and various national and international organizations advance the topic of cyber security, and facilitate a broader global discussion of, and positive momentum for, the development of norms in cyberspace to create a safe, stable, and predictable cyber environment.
The opening keynote speaker for the 2013 conference was Ronald K. Noble, Secretary General of INTERPOL. Past speakers have included: The White House Cybersecurity Coordinator, Deputy Secretaries from the US Departments of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, the former Director of the NSA and DNI, the President of INTERPOL, the ICANN Chairman of the Board, international representatives from the Netherlands, China, Israel, Japan, Romania, Russia, Pakistan, Estonia, Spain, Hungary, and the UK, among others, and leading private industry experts.
