As the world prepares for the incoming Biden/Harris White House, it is expected that the new U.S. administration will make cybersecurity a top-tier national security priority. The incoming Biden administration has recognized election security as a priority, promising to increase investments to state and local governments for upgraded election technology and increase oversight of private election vendors. Their cybersecurity platform aims to enact stronger consumer privacy and security standards as well as confront foreign election interference, China’s 5G ambitions, and the potential of a future global malware outbreak.
IST is excited to host the following technology and policy experts to discuss the Biden administration’s expected leadership, projected cyber strategies, and the implications for both domestic and international politics:
Chris Painter, President, Global Forum on Cyber Expertise Foundation
Kemba Walden, Attorney in the Digital Security Unit at Microsoft
Mieke Eoyang, Senior Vice President, National Security Program at Third Way
Moderated by Eli Sugarman, Director of the Cyber Initiative at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
