Uniting in The Fight

Rolling attacks on America's most sensitive infrastructure are becoming more evident and the risk of hackers breaching networks has the public and private sector on edge. In order to protect against outside actors potentially taking down our power grids, sabotaging energy facilities, and infiltrating the networks of our most vital industries and government agencies-- now more than ever key stakeholders need to come together. We'll gather leaders in industry and government across infrastructure to discuss best security standards and frameworks, how each can be leaders in security technology and innovation. Additionally, how we can collectively share further information to close security gaps, and what education and investment needs to be done now, in order to secure tomorrow's future.

Where Tech Can Lead

As the world and businesses becomes increasingly digitized and connected, the private sector and notably the tech, may hold the keys to provide mission-critical cybersecurity. We'll hear from a top executive who can speak to the ways in which they are thinking about and implementing emerging technologies such as artificially intelligence security systems and machine learning, encryption, biometric authentication, and cloud-based solutions to secure their networks, and others.
