Friday, April 12, 2013
The Knight Studio at the Newseum
8:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
During this high-level public event, a small group of experts will represent various sectors, including government, finance, telecom, and press to discuss the decision-making process in light of a serious cyber security breach. During the course of the half-day conference, the scenario will continue to evolve, forcing experts to focus on key priorities and sector-specific concerns during a major cyber attack against the United States.
The goal of the conference is to encourage greater dialogue about the intricate decision-making process various sectors must face during a serious cyber conflict, and shine light on the need for greater conversation on how to respond to cyber security issues.
The Atlantic Council is also hosting a related event, the Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge, which is the only student competition devoted to high-level policy recommendations for day-after responses to a major cyber incident. This competition will promote awareness of cybersecurity policy issues while providing students and experts an opportunity to network and develop new ideas on the future of cybersecurity policy.
