U.S. Government Perspectives on Cybersecurity

The first panel in the series will focus on the tools the U.S. government has deployed to address cybersecurity threats, including indictments, sanctions and the U.S. Department of Defense “defend forward” strategy, as well as consider how government policy may change in the near term. The panelists are Gary Corn, Director, Tech, Law & Security Program, American University Washington College of Law; former Staff Judge Advocate to U.S. Cyber Command; Andrew Grotto, William J. Perry International Security Fellow at Stanford University and Director of the Program on Geopolitics, Technology and Governance at the Stanford Cyber Policy Center; former Senior Director for Cyber Policy, National Security Council; and Kimberley Raleigh, Deputy Chief of the Office of Law and Policy, National Security Division, U.S. Department of Justice.
