ICIT 2021 Fall Briefing

The 2021 ICIT Fall Briefing Series will be hosted on-line as a series of three weekly virtual events focused on cyber convergence or integrating physical and cyber security strategies. CISA suggests that business leaders develop a “…holistic security strategy that aligns cybersecurity and physical security functions…”. By bringing together top public and private sector leaders, ICIT is advancing the conversation about the importance of protecting our Nation’s critical infrastructures by hosting thought-provoking dialogue about the impact of cyber-physical attacks.

Each week will feature presentations and sessions on a different theme.

Virtual Series:

  • Nov. 16 : Disruptions from the Digital World: The impact of ransomware on critical infrastructures
  • Nov. 23: Securing the Perimeter: Reconciling zero trust and the expanding attack surface
  • Nov. 30: Walking the Line: Balancing innovation and governance

Walking the Line: Balancing Innovation and Bovernance (Session 3 of 3)
With the ever-evolving cyber landscape, innovation and transformation are at the forefront of leader’s minds; however, at the same time, there is an increased focus on cybersecurity governance to ensure the development and compliance of minimum standards or best practices. As a result, leaders are tasked with balancing between differentiating their organizations with innovation and conforming with governance expectations.


In this fireside chat, we will hear from Ann Dunkin, CIO, DOE* on balancing between compliance and optimizing security. In addition, this speaker will discuss to what extent organizations should focus on compliance with standards compared with developing state-of-the-art solutions and innovations.


Session Outcomes:

  • Gaining an executive perspective on current trends regarding compliance and reporting
  • Understand how transparency and accountability support innovation
  • Discussion of innovation opportunities for maximizing compliance
