CYBERSECURITY 2020: IS THERE A BETTER WAY TO PROTECT THE INTERNET?

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

9:00 AM Networking breakfast

9:30 AM – 11:00 AM Discussion

Hosted by SRI International

1100 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA near the Rosyln Metro station 28th
floor (Please remember to bring a picture ID)

Alarming stories about the growing threat of cyberattacks have spurred
the White House, Congress, and corporate leaders to call for more
efforts to improve cybersecurity. But are current approaches to
cybersecurity working? Can we do better?

More and more Internet technology experts argue that today's approach
is broken and that there must be a better way—with new technologies,
better business practices, and more emphasis on the people and
organizations that have to implement them. Can we fix cybersecurity?
Can we overcome inertia and political barriers? What happens if we
don't?
