The event will take place in Gaston Hall, Third Floor, Healy Hall, Georgetown University. 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.
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 – with several topics targeting private sector interests. The conference includes a mixture of keynote speakers, expert panels and moderated discussions, followed by audience participation.
On the evening before the conference, The Honorable John P. Carlin, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, The U.S. Department of Justice, and Dr. Andy Ozment, Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity and Communications, The Department of Homeland Security, will give the keynote addresses at the pre-conference speaker dinner where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A discussion that will follow Chatham House Rules.
