Virtual Monthly Speaker Series: Removing Barriers to Effective Cybersecurity in Government

Five months ago, the Administration took bold steps to improve the nation’s cybersecurity and protect federal government networks from sophisticated, malicious cyber activity from both nation-state actors and cyber criminals. Modernizing national cybersecurity defenses has never been more critical. The executive order followed cyberattacks that were a sobering reminder of the vulnerability and the impact of these attacks.


This panel will discuss how government chief information security officers are leading the charge to secure and protect our nation and the American people.


This event is on the record.
