Description

The U.S. Congress plays a key role in cybersecurity policy. Congress has established a National Office for Cybersecurity at the White House, now requires federal agencies to conduct independent audits of their information security programs, and has established new policies for agency acquisition and procurement. But with overlap of jurisdictions and expertise, it can be difficult for the United States to execute a cohesive, organized cybersecurity strategy.

Two years ago, Congressman Mike McCaul co-founded the first-ever House Cyber Security Caucus to address these areas of oversight and inconsistency. Join Congressman McCaul in a moderated discussion on the cyber issues the Obama Administration faces and how Congress might work with the president and federal agencies to streamline U.S. policies for the future.

Join our expert panel and:

* Learn about the next legislative steps in establishing strong, centralized protection of critical information infrastructure
* Receive an update on the House Cyber Security Caucus's plans for creating comprehensive, government-wide policies for operating in cyberspace
* Hear the same recommendations that the CSIS Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency made to the Obama Administration on how agencies should secure their information to best protect national interests
