Emerging DOD and DHS Cybersecurity Strategies

Breakfast Briefing Presented by: CyberSecurity Seminars and Crowell & Moring LLP, and the Georgtown Institute of Law, Science and Global Security on November 4 from 8am to 10:30am at 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, 11th Floor.

As cyber attacks continue to rise at alarming rates, both the military and civilian cyber defenses are needing to adapt constantly to counter the threat.  Developing the best strategies to counter the constantly changing and growing threats is vitally important...and increasingly challenging in the 24/7, hyper kinetic world of cyberspace.

Come hear from two key, government insider strategists involved at the ground floor of developing the cyber policies and strategies at the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) at DHS and the Navy Fleet Cyber Command (FCC) /10th Fleet (C10F) headquartered at Fort Meade.

Robert Carey, the former CIO of the U.S. Department of the Navy, is the new Director of Strategy and Policy of FCC, which launched this past January and directs Navy cyberspace operations globally.

Bruce McConnell, an experienced IT pro, advises on cybersecurity matters across DHS. Under his leadership, McConnell's Cyber + Strategy Team is responsible for developing the overall cybersecurity strategy for DHS, aligned with the national strategy developed by the White House National Security Staff.

Finally, Amit Yoran, CEO of NetWitness, will assess and analyze the significance of STUXNET, which impacts the cybersecutiry strategies of government and industy alike.
