NTSC Announces Midwest Regional CISO Policy Roundtable

Thursday, April 5, 2018

ATLANTA, GA (April 5, 2018) – The National Technology Security Coalition will hold its NTSC Midwest Regional CISO Policy Roundtable on May 8, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Hosted by NTSC Board Member Duaine Styles, CISO of Globe Life, the event will feature General Kevin McLaughlin (Ret.) of McLaughlin Global Associates who will talk about cyber trends in national security, and Dr. Gregory White, Director of the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security at The University of Texas at San Antonio, who will talk about the policy implications of AI.

“The NTSC closely watches national cybersecurity policy related to AI and national defense because of the major impact such policies have on CISOs,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “After leading a great discussion at our last roundtable in New York City, we’re featuring General McLaughlin again due to the high demand and interest around the topic of national defense and cybersecurity. We’re also looking forward to Dr. White’s perspective on the implications of current and upcoming AI cybersecurity policy—especially as it impacts how CISOs use AI to defend against sophisticated cyberattacks.”

An invitation-only event for CISOs and senior cybersecurity policy stakeholders, the NTSC Midwest Regional CISO Policy Roundtable serves as part of our mission to provide a platform for CISOs to discuss and advocate for beneficial legislative and regulatory cybersecurity policies. General McLaughlin, the former Deputy Commander of U.S. Cyber Command, will share his insights about important trends with USCYBERCOM and discuss the importance of fostering dialogue between government and the private sector to defend US critical infrastructure from cyberattacks. Dr. White, who also served as a Colonel in the USAF Reserve for many years, will give an overview of the implications of current and upcoming AI cybersecurity policy—specifically how AI-related cybersecurity laws, policies, and regulations will affect rapid developments in this area.

In addition to learning more about cyber trends in national defense and the policy implications of AI and cybersecurity, CISOs will network with peers during the event and at a private dinner and reception after the event.

The NTSC provides a platform for CISOs to advocate for beneficial legislative and regulatory policies. We encourage dialogue about cybersecurity issues, laws, and regulations through advocacy engagement with congressional members, regional CISO policy roundtables, and an annual DC Fly-In as part of our National CISO Policy Conference.
