Update on National Cybersecurity Strategy and Other Cyber Legislation

Eric Goldstein, Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity, CISA

On March 2, 2023, the Office of the National Cyber Director released the much-anticipated National Cybersecurity Strategy, which will continue to be debated throughout the remainder of this year as it contains recommendations that are forward thinking, innovative, and yet also controversial in that the strategy advocates for "Rebalancing the Responsibility for Cybersecurity", a recommendation that has generated a great deal of conversation in the private sector as well as the hallways of Congress.

Eric Goldstein, the Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity at CISA will join us to discuss the major role CISA has in supporting the implementation plan expected from ONCD along with other priorities such as the rule-making process on the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act (CIRCIA).

Oki Mek, Federal Civilian Chief Information Security Officer for Microsoft Corporation, Rhett Krulla, Chief Technology Officer for the Homeland Security Division at Microsoft Corporation, Steve Pugh, Chief Information Security Officer for Intercontinental Exchange (ICE)

The White House announced earlier this month that it would take new actions to further promote responsible innovation in artificial intelligence, in advance of a meeting between Vice President Kamala Harris and the chief executive officers of a number of prominent companies, including Microsoft. As the federal government looks to build its comprehensive approach to AI technology, generative AI tools create both opportunities and challenges that extend across the cybersecurity landscape.

We invite you to join Microsoft's Oki Mek, CISO for the Federal Civilian Sector, and Rhett Krulla, CTO for the Homeland Security Division, along with Steve Pugh, CISO at Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), to discuss how the future of cybersecurity will be impacted by AI and how AI tools can empower security professionals to detect hidden patterns, harden defenses, and respond to incidents faster. The discussion will also touch on institutional obstacles and considerations for AI integration, as well as the importance of trust in responsible AI applications.
