Leveraging Open-access Federal Data Stores – Challenges and Opportunities
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

 Not all Federal government data sits behind a firewall.  Transparency efforts have made important data broadly available and ready for use.  Knowing it is available is one thing; making it useful is an entirely different matter.  In this session, a panel of functional and technical data experts will talk about data source opportunities, common roadblocks to using the data, and strategies for making the most of what you can get.

Old Laws and New Technology: How Can We Keep Up?

Around the world legal frameworks are failing to keep pace with technology. Domestically nations are struggling to secure consumers’ privacy and conflicted about how best to manage the effects of powerful new technologies like artificial intelligence without stifling innovation.

Is regulation necessary, or can voluntary frameworks suffice? Where are the current points of failure in our legal system? Where are the strengths? What responsibilities do technologists have? What should policymakers avoid in developing new regulatory efforts? What are the consequences if we fail? How can policy catalyze innovation?

The American Bar Association Standing Committee on Law and National Security, New America, and Pitt Cyber host a discussion of the widening gap between coding and codes. Former US Attorney David Hickton, known for his groundbreaking cybercrime and cyber espionage indictments, will share his view from the front lines of enforcing existing laws, after which an expert panel discussion will discuss the issues raised.

Join the conversation online by using #CyberLaw and following @NewAmCyber and @PittCyber.

The Current State of Public & Private Cybersecurity Partnership
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.

Discussion on Application Security in the Age of Open Source
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Open source software is the foundation for application development worldwide, comprising 80-90% of the code in today’s applications.  It reduces development costs, speeds time to market and accelerates innovation which is driving adoption, but the explosion in open source use has not been accompanied by effective security and management practices.

A 2017 Black Duck analysis of code audits conducted on 1,071 applications found that 97% contained open source, but 67% of the applications had open source vulnerabilities, half of which were categorized as severe.   

Join Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger for a discussion of best practices in open source security and management to reduce application security risk. You’ll learn:

  • Strategies to minimize the impact of open source security vulnerabilities when immediate fixes can’t be made
  • Ways to assess the risk associated with a discovered open source vulnerability
  • Scalable approaches to designing application testing for different agile-development pipelines

Business Email Compromise: Facts, Threats and Countermeasures
Limited Capacity seats available

Business Email Compromise (BEC) has become a significant threat to U.S. businesses and individuals. Since October 2013, the FBI has identified victims from 131 countries and a global monetary loss of over $5 billion dollars as a result of BEC fraud. BEC is a sophisticated scam using email and/or other electronic communication to impersonate a business executive, employee, or other person with authority to request payments or access to employee payroll and W2 information on behalf of their company or organization.

Due to the significant uptick of the BEC scheme and its threat to U.S. businesses and individuals, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the United States Secret Service (USSS) are working together to provide up-to-date BEC intelligence to private industry. Held at the unclassified level, this presentation will provide an overview of BEC, information sharing mechanisms, and mitigation strategies.

Rethinking Corporate Active Cyber Defense

Increasingly frequent and severe cyberattacks targeting the private sector globally are fueling debates over whether to allow corporations to engage in “active cyber defense.”  Numerous trends point to the potential for this practice to grow internationally, potentially posing significant dilemmas for governance.

As part of DC CyberWeek, Carnegie’s Cyber Policy Initiative invites you to the launch event of the Carnegie report Private Sector Cyber Defense: Can Active Measure Help Stabilize Cyberspace?

 

This report assesses the potential risks and benefits of creating space for a legitimate practice of private sector ACD internationally, and explores how insurance companies and policies could provide a framework to bound such activity and incentivize responsible conduct.
