NTSC Midwest Regional CISO Policy Roundtable – Houston

May 8, 2018

Hosted by NTSC Board Member Duaine Styles, CISO of Globe Life, the National Technology Security Coalition’s Midwest Regional CISO Policy Roundtable brings together senior technology security executives in an exclusive setting—with great speakers talking about cyber trends in national defense and the policy implications of AI.

With national defense and private sector cybersecurity tied together more than ever before, CISOs desire more dialogue with the federal government about what a productive cybersecurity partnership looks like. In addition, AI is not only changing the cybersecurity landscape but also affecting national cybersecurity policy—leaving CISOs curious about how current and upcoming AI-related legislation and regulations may affect how they protect their companies.

Cyber Trends in National Security

General Kevin McLaughlin (Ret.), McLaughlin Global Associates

Lt. General McLaughlin, former Deputy Commander of USCYBERCOM, says, “National security and cybersecurity have increasingly become more intertwined every year, and we’re now at an important inflection point when it comes to the way we approach defending ourselves against cyber attacks.” Lt. General McLaughlin 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.

Policy Implications of AI and Cybersecurity

As AI currently revolutionizes information technology, it’s both a boon and bane to cybersecurity. Machine learning can help CISOs protect themselves against cyberattacks—while cyber threat actors leverage AI to conduct more sophisticated exploits. How will AI-related cybersecurity laws, policies, and regulations affect these rapid developments? Dr. White will give an overview of the implications of current and upcoming AI cybersecurity policy.

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.
