ATLANTA, GA (May 31, 2018) – Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the National Technology Security Coalition, released the following statement today:
“As the only national organization representing the Chief Information Security Officer, the NTSC is proud to learn that two distinguished members of our Advisory Board will participate in a briefing on Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Cybersecurity to Congressional staff. Hosted by The Wilson Center in conjunction with the Congressional Artificial Intelligence Caucus and the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, the briefing will take place on Friday, June 1, 2018, from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2322.
“Gary Hayslip, Vice President and Global CISO of Webroot, and Chris Sullivan, CISO of Core Security, are both distinguished experts in the areas of AI and cybersecurity. Gary’s cybersecurity experience encompasses CISO roles for both the public and private sector, and he is a sought-after voice in the cybersecurity industry through his frequent speaking and publishing on topics such as AI and machine learning. Chris is also well-known as an industry thought leader through his many speaking engagements at major industry conferences, his prior service as Chairman of the Access Risk Benchmarking Committee for ISACA, and his prior leadership working at Courion Corporation’s CoreLabs. Chris is at the forefront of cybersecurity research and innovation through his role at Core Security and participation with many industry groups.
“Since our establishment in 2016, the NTSC has been at the forefront of advocating on behalf of CISOs from across the nation. Having Gary and Chris participate in this briefing confirms that the Chief Information Security Officer’s perspective needs to be heard when Congress debates policies related to cybersecurity threats and solutions.”
