Lieutenant General Kevin McLaughlin to Speak at NTSC Northeast Regional CISO Policy Roundtable
ATLANTA, GA (January 22, 2018 ) – Lieutenant General James K. "Kevin" McLaughlin, President of McLaughlin Global Associates and former Deputy Commander of U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), will speak at the NTSC Northeast Regional CISO Policy Roundtable on February 21, 2018 in New York City. Recently joining the NTSC Advisory Board, General McLaughlin will speak about cyber trends in national security.
“As we enter 2018, national security involves cybersecurity more and more, especially as nation states, organized crime, and hackers often work together to bring down organizations around the globe,” said General McLaughlin. “More than ever, CISOs need a deep understanding of cybersecurity from a national security perspective because those policies will affect how CISOs protect consumers and their companies. I look forward to speaking with CISOs and other cybersecurity stakeholders in February as a part of this important roundtable discussion.”
As President of McLaughlin Global Associates, General McLaughlin leverages his 34 years of military service and extensive cyberspace experience to advise senior executives and corporate boards. He also speaks to public audiences about cyberspace and space operations, cyber defense, cyber risk management, strategy formulation and implementation, domestic and international cyber policy, and critical infrastructure protection. His fields of expertise include leadership, national security, technological innovation, training, and exercises. As Deputy Commander of USCYBERCOM, General McLaughlin directed the cyber forces that defend the Department of Defense’s information networks, provide full-spectrum cyberspace options to military plans and operations and, when directed, defend U.S. critical infrastructure from cyberattacks of significant consequence.
“With so much cyber-uncertainty at a national security level worrying many CISOs, it’s essential to have someone with General McLaughlin’s military experience to give us his perspective at our upcoming NTSC Northeast Regional CISO Policy Roundtable,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “Hearing directly from the former Deputy Commander of USCYBERCOM in such an intimate setting will offer CISOs a lot of opportunity to talk about issues such public-private sector information sharing and how the government can help companies fend off major cyberattacks from very sophisticated threat actors. Our Board and NTSC members are already excited about the February roundtable knowing General McLaughlin will be there as a speaker.”
General McLaughlin will join other distinguished speakers who will address a variety of other pressing and important cybersecurity topics. An invitation-only event for CISOs and senior cybersecurity policy stakeholders, the NTSC Northeast Regional CISO Policy Roundtable serves as part of our mission to provide a platform for CISOs to advocate for beneficial legislative and regulatory cybersecurity policies.
