Cybersecurity is a top priority for DHS. Cyber threats are increasing in frequency, scale, and sophistication. Cybersecurity must be a partnership between government and industry.

Spaulding will also detail how DHS is improving and expanding its capability to send and receive cyber threat information to the private sector.

Assurance and Security, The University of Texas at San Antonio

  • Matt Barrett, Program Manager, Computer Security Division , National Institute of Standards and Technology 
  • Myles Vogel, National Director (Dean) for College of Information Technology, Interim CIO Ph.D. Information Technology, WGU 

Many experts believe that technology alone can not solve cybersecurity. Products and solutions are regularly brought to market to address emerging threats, and the private sector is sharing best practices across sectors. The question now is about people. How are educational institutions building programs to funnel more talent into the pipeline and what skillsets do organizations need to fulfill their workforce challenges.

2:15–2:30 NETWORKING BREAK

2:30–2:45 PROTECTING YOUR CYBER NETWORK USING THE NIST FRAMEWORK

  • Matt Barrett, Program Manager, Computer Security Division , National Institute of Standards and Technology

Cybersecurity experts often say that there are two types of businesses—those that have been hacked and know it, and those that have been hacked and don’t know it yet. In 2014, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released a cybersecurity framework to help businesses start a cybersecurity program or improve an existing one. Sedgewick will discuss best practices to help early users of the framework better understand it, give business owners
tools and tips for strengthening a cybersecurity program, and explore ways to communicate about cyber with small and midsize supply chain partners.

2:45–3:25 MANAGING CYBERSECURITY IN THE C-SUITE PANEL DISCUSSION

Moderator: Chris Furlow, President, Ridge Global 

  •  Wayne Reynolds, Vice President , Armor 
  • Usman Shuja, Vice President, Market Development, SparkCognition          

The need to address cybersecurity threats to American and global businesses has gone froman IT issue to a top priority for the C-suite and the boardroom. For many businesses, it’s not a matter of if an intrusion will happen, but when. In an interconnected world, economic security and national security are linked. People—business leaders—need to be committed to managing cyber risks to their organizations. Technology is only part of the solution. Are boardsand senior managers increasingly governing cybersecurity better? Directors and officers have a duty to protect the assets—e.g., devices and data—of their companies. Do boards and senior executives appreciate the costs—e.g., legal, public relations, regulatory, and reputational—of a consequential attack? What are some effective ways to talk to company leaders about securing cybersecurity resources?

3:25–3:30 CLOSING REMARKS

Ann M. Beauchesne, Senior Vice President, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
