Washington Cyber Roundtable

 

The safety, freedom, and openness of cyberspace are critical to American national security and economic vitality.  Accordingly, our nation’s leaders must address a range of complex policy, regulatory, technical, and training issues associated with a rapidly evolving digital environment.  The private sector, which operates much of the nation’s critical infrastructure, has both common and unique perspectives on these issues.  Offering innovation and agility, industry remains a valuable resource for government agencies as they meet their responsibilities in cyberspace.

 

The Washington Cyber Roundtable provides a simple and effective mechanism for government and industry to constructively address the most challenging issues related to securing cyberspace.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“An excellent environment for open and candid engagement amongst cyber professionals looking for ideas to solve tough issues. WCR has demonstrated the ability to bring key strategy and decision makers to the table for very small group discussions.”

— Leidos
