About the International Conference on Cyber Engagement


The eighth annual International Conference on Cyber Engagement (ICCE) will be held on April 23, 2019, in Washington, DC. Under the leadership of Dr. Catherine Lotrionte, ICCE draws on the experience of government practitioners, industry representatives, and academic scholars, this event brings a multidisciplinary and global approach to the challenges in cyberspace from technical, corporate, legal, and policy perspectives in the United States and abroad. In past years, ICCE has attracted over 800 participants from nearly 400 organizations – corporate, government, non-profit, and academic – representing 43 nations.

Previously organized and held at Georgetown University, the conference provides a unique opportunity for corporate and government leaders to engage in thought leadership and constructive dialogue with policymakers, academics, and key industry stakeholders from across the globe, and explores the worldwide community’s increasing interconnectivity in this domain.

In preparation for the 2019 conference, the Atlantic Council hosted the ICCE Fall Planning Dinner on November 14, 2018, to gather partners and future speakers and government and corporate leaders to shape the agenda for the conference and discuss pressing global cybersecurity issues.

In past years, ICCE has covered topics including: rule of law in cyberspace, international cyber diplomacy, cyber warfare, and the changing business of cybersecurity. Past speakers include US government leaders, such as the White House cybersecurity coordinator, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, deputy secretaries from the US Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, the former and current directors of the National Security Agency, the US director of national intelligence, the cyber coordinator for the US State Department, senior representatives from international organizations such as the president and secretary general of the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), the chairman of the board for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the United Nations high representative for disarmament affairs, foreign government representatives from across the globe, and leading private industry experts.
