Cybersecurity usually is at a disadvantage against bad actors. It must focus, first and foremost, on defense – protecting assets and information – while hostile interests keep finding new ways to launch their attacks, such as the rise of ransomware. Of Gartner's top seven trends in cybersecurity for 2022, a majority of them are about risks and playing defense.


To strengthen defenses, the infrastructure law signed by President Biden in November 2021 allocated $1 billion for grants to improve state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) agencies’ cybersecurity, while the budget plan for fiscal year 2023 allocates $10.9 billion for federal cybersecurity, up 11% from the previous year.


And in an attempt to “flip the script” and get ahead of threats, an investment fund supported by the White House is looking to invest in “deep technologies” such as AI and quantum computing that have cybersecurity applications.


Join us as thought leaders from government and industry discuss the trends in cybersecurity that have the potential to change the landscape.
