Cyber Security In The Homeland: Are We Masters Of Our Domain?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Let’s face it, if there were a year we’d all like to forget, it would be 2014 in terms of confronting our cyber insecurity. Yes, we’ve had bad years before but 2014 felt different -- like something out of a movie script. Many are left wondering whether the Internet technology the U.S. pioneered is being used against us.

Policymakers, law enforcement, industry leaders and civil liberties advocates have long been working on proposals to better secure our networks and data. Just recently the President has announced a renewed focus for cyber security.

Our panel of experts will explore the state of our cyber security and what steps can be taken to secure the Homeland.
