New York City – June 4, 2020

June 4, 2020

The National Technology Security Coalition’s 2020 Eastern Region CISO Policy Roundtable brings together senior technology security executives in an exclusive setting to talk about trends in national cybersecurity policy.

Federal Privacy Legislation: The Challenge & The Opportunity

Our opening session will focus on the critical need for federal privacy legislation. Joining the discussion will be Jordan Crenshaw, Policy Counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Peter Miller, Senior Counsel at Crowell & Moring and the former Chief Privacy Officer at the FTC; Brett DeWitt, Director of Public Policy at Mastercard (invited); and Robert Ball, Chief Privacy Officer at Ionic Security.

With GDPR and CCPA now in effect, multiple states are working toward enacting privacy legislation, which will ultimately lead to an environment where covered entities will be required to comply with a multiplicity of often conflicting state regulations. Federal privacy legislation is a priority for the NTSC and this session is designed to educate everyone about the challenges ahead of us as we attempt to motivate our congressional leaders to act in a bipartisan manner and enact a federal privacy standard.

CISA Update

We will then be joined by Bryan Ware, the Assistant Director for Cybersecurity at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) (invited). Assistant Director Ware will provide an update on CISA and the agency’s priorities for 2020. Assistant Director Ware is relatively new to his position and this roundtable serves as an excellent opportunity to introduce him to the NTSC and CISO community.
