Limited Capacity filling up

Cybersecurity continues to be a top-tier critical issue, and the need to protect the country against significant cyberattacks is at a critical point.  With recent news reports of fairly wide-spread hacking attempts by foreign operatives during the most recent Presidential election, combined with significant data breaches as reported by private companies, cybersecurity is among the top enterprise risk for almost every organization – public and private.

To highlight the criticality of cybersecurity, a Presidential Executive Order was signed on earlier this year focusing on cybersecurity needs of Federal IT infrastructure and coordination between agencies to protect against cyber-attacks.  The executive order also calls out the need to secure the country’s critical infrastructure, reflecting the need a strong public and private partnership in cybersecurity. 

Georgetown University will host a panel discussion to discuss the current state of the public and private cybersecurity partnership in defending the country against cyberattacks.
