Atlanta – October 5, 2017

Our first annual National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) CISO Policy Conference is an opportunity for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and other cybersecurity stakeholders to:

  • Educate policymakers about issues impacting their businesses.
  • Ensure that the policy priorities of the technology security industry are heard on Capitol Hill.
  • Discuss and learn about the latest cybersecurity policy issues from lawmakers and cybersecurity policy experts.

Uniquely focused on national cybersecurity policy, our conference will include updates on our cybersecurity progress on the Hill while also facilitating dialogue, education, and networking connections with people who influence cybersecurity policy in Washington D.C.

An invitation-only event for CISOs and cybersecurity policy stakeholders, the NTSC CISO Policy Conference will conclude Atlanta Cyber Week—a week of exciting Atlanta cybersecurity activity that includes Baker Donelson’s Cybersecurity Accelerator Meetup and Cybercon 2017.
