This will be the first time Frank will publicly talk about this research. Frank’s presentation will be oriented for the beginner and curious as well as those advanced and everyone in between…

Part 2

Expert Panel: Hear from industry leaders discuss what “responsible cyber policy” is in regards to national cyber-security and “what responsible privacy means looking through the lens of responsible policy”…

Panelists also include:
Rebekah Lewis | Executive in Residence and the Deputy Director of the Kogod Cybersecurity Governance Center (KCGC) at American University’s Kogod School of Business in Washington, D.C.
