Cyber Security in an Age of Uncertainty: U.S.-Israel Perspectives

Join us for a two-day conference
March 20 and 21, 2017

National security, human rights, and the global digital economy are now dependent on cyber security. Through a series of four expert panels, the conference will explore cutting-edge U.S.-Israeli cyberpolicy issues involving national security, crime, human rights, and the digital economy. Topics to be discussed include active cyber military operations, Internet freedom, cybertheft, and technological capabilities. Each panel will explore the responsibilities of various governmental agencies as well as the roles of the private sector and the public in each country.
