Our nation’s increasing utilization, reliance, and sheer dependence upon technology for our societal infrastructure is undeniable. The pervasiveness of technological advancements has significant implications for how individuals engage in their daily lives, the functioning of our economy, the conduct of business by the government as well as the private sector, and – ultimately – the protection of our national interests and provision of our common defense. As our dependence on the cyber domain grows, so does our vulnerability. Join us as our panelists seek to examine how the U.S. should react to these changed circumstances in cyber security.
