This event is sponsored by IWP’s Cyber Intelligence Initiative as part of a series of guest lectures titled “New Initiatives in Cyber.” This series will take place during October, which is Cyber Awareness Month.

Cyber 380x204A popular refrain in today’s cybersecurity discourse is the call for more collaboration, coordination, and information sharing between the public and private sectors to address the growing number state and non-state actors in the cyber domain.

This panel takes the current national dialogue to the next level of analysis and posits that there are national security lessons learned, insights, approaches, and experiences in this changing threat landscape that could inform the preparedness or “readiness” of technical teams, business units, staff functions, and enterprise leadership in the private sector.

This session suggests “The Enterprise Readiness Model” as a way to develop solutions for our frontline cyber teams who are in a daily fight for survival and need answers that reflect “the best the country has to offer.”
