Fireside Chat: Cyber Threat Intelligence Sharing - Are We Better Off Today?

Cory Simpson, Founder & CEO, Gray Space Strategies with Emilian Papadopoulos, President, Good Harbor Security Risk Management and Marene Allison, former Vice President & Chief Information Security Officer for Johnson & Johnson

Years ago during a Presidential debate, the candidate asked a simple, but provocative question given the economic climate at the time. The question was “Are you better off now that you were four years ago?” The NTSC would like to explore the same question but focused on Cyber Threat Intelligence Sharing. Are we better off as a nation today than we were four years ago with respect to the quality and quantity of cyber threat information being shared between the private and public sectors.

CISO Panel: Privacy! The States Take Control

Brandon Pugh, President, Policy Director & Resident Senior Fellow for the Cybersecurity & Emerging Threats, R Street Institute, Kathleen Scott, Partner & Attorney at Law, Wiley Rein, LLP, moderated by Courtney Stout, Chief Privacy Officer, The Coca Cola Company

In a one-week period in January of 2023 four states (Hawaii, Indiana, New York, and Massachusetts) introduced consumer privacy bills. Hawaii and New York also introduced bio-metric privacy bills and Massachusetts introduced a bill focused on health data privacy. Overall, eleven states are considering consumer privacy bills across a wide range including bio-metric, health data, children’s privacy, data brokers, algorithmic discrimination, and automated employment decision tool bills. The reality is in the absence of a federal privacy mandate like the American Data Privacy & Protection Act, which failed to get advanced by the Senate during the 117 th Congress, States are going to aggressively move to protect their consumers even if it means we end-up with 50 separate privacy bills, replicating the data breach notification scenario.
