Active Cyber Defense vs. Hacking Back: A Discussion on Lawful and Strategic Approaches to a Digital Breach
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

TO ATTEND THIS EVENT, YOU MUST RSVP SEPARATELY

A rapid escalation in cyberattacks and the weaponization of digital information have disrupted virtually every major corporation and left executives scrambling to find the appropriate response. A key element in this debate, and one currently being heard on Capitol Hill, is whether companies should have the right to retaliate against their cyber assailants, and to what extent they can and should. While the controversial “hacking back” argument has been well debated in the industry, an emerging concept known as “Active Defense” is rapidly gaining focus as a way for the private sector to take proactive measures to detect, disrupt and respond to adversaries, within the confines of the law.
 
APCO Worldwide is convening a roundtable of leading cyber security experts on Oct. 17 during CyberWeek to discuss this dynamic and the risk posed to international commerce by a rising tide of digital threat actors. Our experts will explore the need for an aggressive “active defense” – one that both safeguards a company’s operations while underpinning the drive for a more secure Internet.

Creating a Cybersecurity "Energy Star" for our Connected Future
Limited Capacity filling up

TO ATTEND THIS EVENT, YOU MUST RSVP SEPARATELY.

This roundtable discussion will focus on a working paper outlining how the United States might develop an “Energy Star” label for consumer-grade internet-of-things products. We’ll provide an advance copy of the draft paper to all participants and an opportunity for feedback during the roundtable.

We’ll discuss key areas from the paper, including technical elements to developing a certification process for a label, the potential role government (federal or state) could play, and possible incentives for encouraging stakeholders to implement a cybersecurity labeling program that benefits both consumers and the marketplace. (We’ll also provide snacks and coffee!)

The roundtable will operate under Chatham House Rule. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
