Protecting US Critical Infrastructure

October 17, 2018 - 4:15 pm

1030 15th Street Northwest, 12th Floor
Washington, DC
The security of US critical infrastructure is vital to the nation’s security, prosperity, and well-being. We live in an era of constant advances in the sophistication of attack technology and the emergence of evidence of more destructive attacks and bolder nation-state actions resulting in unprecedented access to power grid operations. Despite renewed concerns about the threat and the risks associated with potential disruptions, the threat clearly outpaces our ability to secure the infrastructure.
 
Join us as we convene a group of experts to address recent threat trends, how can the US and its partners and allies devise strategies to create resilient critical infrastructure systems, what lessons can be learned from previous attacks, and what is the role of the private sector, cybersecurity professionals, and the government in this ongoing fight?
