ATLANTA, GA (July 13, 2018) – On July 18, 2018, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and other cybersecurity stakeholders from across the United States will attend the second annual National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) DC Fly-In. Attendees of the fly-in will speak with members of Congress and congressional staffers about policy issues impacting the CISO community and the cybersecurity industry.
This year’s DC Fly-In calls for action and policy priorities include:
“The NTSC’s core membership now includes 35 CISOs from Fortune 1000 companies and academic institutions from across the United States who represent a wide cross-section of industries,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “Advocating on behalf of CISOs is critically important because they offer a practical point of view about cybersecurity for lawmakers in Washington D.C. Over the past year, our visibility on Capitol Hill has increased as the NTSC has become a credible trusted policy advisor with Congress and federal agencies. Legislators now regularly ask for our coalition’s input about various cybersecurity policies. We look forward to our discussions with legislators on July 18 as CISOs offer insights and guidance about national cybersecurity laws, regulations, and policies.”
