Cybersecurity is one of the most critical issues the United States faces today. It seems like every day a cyber attack is in the news and the seriousness of these attacks is growing. While the U.S. needs to do something to combat the growing cyber threat, the U.S. also needs to ensure that it get this right. Despite the best intentions of those involved with previous cyber legislative efforts, attempts to regulate cybersecurity simply will not work. Regulations will not improve security and may actually lower it by providing a false sense of security and tying the private sector down with outdated requirements and higher costs. Cyberspace’s dynamic nature must be acknowledged and addressed by policies that are equally dynamic.
Please join us to hear a panel of national security policy experts detail seven measures that the United States should implement to protect its assets and interests in the cyber domain.
