A Cybersecurity Agenda for the Next President

Wednesday, May 07 | 11:30AM–12:30AM | Regency AB (Ballroom Level)
Session Type: Professional Development
There has been much improvement in securing cyberspace in the last five years, but much still needs to be done. The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) has established a Commission on Cyber Security for the 44th Presidency, the administration that will take office in January 2009. The goal of the commission is to identify a strategy and set of recommendations for the next administration to move ahead in securing cyberspace. This session will provide a status report on the commission's work to date. It will also provide an opportunity to offer input regarding progress that has been made in the higher education sector, remaining challenges and opportunities, and the role of the federal government to help improve cybersecurity at colleges and universities.
