Whole of Nation Response to Ransomware

July 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Public-private partnership to support national security and critical infrastructure resiliency has been touted for years, but what does it look like in action? In today’s environment, where most of our critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector who must now play first responder and is responsible to defend their assets, it means taking a whole of nation approach, where business leaders prioritize cybersecurity alongside traditional business objectives.

A live audience Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.

This fireside chat will explore the intersection of national security, cybersecurity, and the private sector in responding to the ransomware pandemic and other digital threats.
