On September 28, 2017, the New York Cyber Task Force released a series of recommendations that would help make it easier to defend cyberspace without sacrificing the utility, flexibility, and convenience that has made the Internet so essential to our economies and personal lives. At this Washington, DC launch event, the task force members will discuss the report’s groundbreaking findings and recommendations for a more defensible cyberspace.

What sets this report apart? The members of the New York Cyber Task Force started from the basic premise that we need to give cyber defenders the advantage over attackers, developing a strategy based on leverage: those innovations across technology, operational, and policy domains which grant the greatest advantage to the defender at the least cost and greatest scale. Using this standard, the task force developed a number of key recommendations to unlock a safer cyberspace. The Task Force included 30 senior-level experts, counting among its members executives in finance and cybersecurity, former government officials, and leading academics. The group’s co-chairs are Phil Venables of Goldman Sachs, Greg Rattray of JP Morgan Chase and Atlantic Council, and Merit E. Janow, the dean of Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.
