According to the White House, on June 3rd, executives in the United States received an open letter informing them that cybersecurity should be one of their top objectives. As simple as they may appear, the letter’s instructions to develop robust incident response plans, pen-testing campaigns, and adopt network segmentation demonstrate a shift in government acumen in the cybersecurity sector. Highly recommended event for all those interested in this space.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Saturday, August 28th 2021, or created by us.
On Thursday, June 3rd, the White House issued an open letter to US executives warning them that they should consider cybersecurity one of their top priorities. The recommendations of the letter may seem rudimentary, but the suggestions to create strong incident response plans, pen-testing campaigns, and introduce network segmentation, indicate a change in the sophistication that governments exhibit in the cybersecurity arena.
This letter followed May’s Signing of a presidential Executive Order which sets out a new vision to improve the US’ cybersecurity and protect federal government networks.
And it comes at a time when FBI Director Christopher Wray is comparing the current spate of cyberattacks with the challenge posed by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. As he said: “There are a lot of parallels, there’s a lot of importance… [and]…There’s a shared responsibility, not just across government agencies but across the private sector and even the average American.”
This sudden escalation of language and action is perplexing, given the obvious significance of cybersecurity, but welcome nonetheless.
The 13th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Mid-Year Summit will take place online and will look at how cybersecurity teams are tackling this new world. Join us for real-life case studies, strategic guidance, and in-depth technical sessions from the security and privacy teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands.
