Tomorrow, the Council on Foreign Relations will hold a half-day, multi-session symposium to bring together leading policymakers and experts to address the state of cybersecurity in the United States and abroad. It will examine the United States’ cybersecurity priorities over the next twelve months and identify challenges and opportunities for the next administration. Speakers will assess the United States’ emphasis on cyber offense and deterrence, and how they fit in the country’s existing cyber norm promotion efforts. In addition, the symposium will provide an opportunity for speakers from the International Telecommunication Union, Israel, Japan and Colombia to describe how they identify cybersecurity threats and design policy responses.
We have a great lineup of speakers, including Michael Daniel, special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator at the White House; Michael McCaul, chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security; Scott Charney, corporate vice president of trustworthy computing at Microsoft; Chris Painter, coordinator for cyber issues at the State Department; Eneken Tikk-Ringas, senior fellow for the Future Conflict and Cyber Security program at the International Institute for Strategic Studies; and Diego Molano Vega, former minister of information technologies and communication of Colombia. Jeh Johnson, secretary of homeland security, will provide the keynote address.
The event starts at tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. and will be live-streamed here.
