Cybersecurity: What’s The Next Move?

We’re thrilled to announce another panel at State of the Net on January 29. We’ve asked a panel of experts to look at the future of cybersecurity policy in Washington. Faecbook’s most senior cyber security policy executive, Nathaniel Gleicher, will join Evelyn Remaley,* and other experts for an in-depth discussion of pertinent cybersecurity issues.

The past few years have seen both more and more dangerous cyberattacks, and the U.S. government is beginning to respond to emerging cyber threats. The Departments of Commerce and Homeland Security released a report to strengthen systems against botnet attacks last May. 2018 also saw an updated release of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, which will be coming up on its 5th Anniversary this year.

Is it time to celebrate that anniversary or do we need something more? At the same time supply chain attacks are becoming increasingly prevalent. Our panel will discuss the current cybersecurity environment, how agencies can improve cybersecurity in government and in the private sector, and the effectiveness of guidance such as the botnet report and NIST framework.
