Cybersecuring America:Our Shared Responsibility

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 9:00am to 11:00am

The National Cybersecurity Alliance presents this webinar as a Cybersecurity Awareness Month event. 

In May 2021, The White House issued an executive order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity. This summer, several bi-partisan bills have been introduced on Capitol Hill aiming to improve cybersecurity funding and infrastructure. Only weeks ago, major technology companies announced their commitments to cybersecurity. After the large number of recent high-profile cyber attacks, government and industry leaders are taking necessary steps to improve our nation’s cybersecurity. However, no initiative can exist on its own. Security efforts require well-coordinated, public/private approaches to ensure that every part of our interconnected society is secure.

In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, elected officials, government leaders and industry executives come together to discuss the “whole of society” approach vital to cybersecuring our nation.
