Cybersecurity Briefing: Critical Infrastructure Is at High Risk
 

Note: Event parking is available at Lyngby Storcenter (a short walk).


AmCham Denmark, in cooperation with the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), is pleased to welcome you to a Cybersecurity Briefing with leading American expert in cyberspace policy and cybersecurity, Melissa Hathaway.

There is an alarming trend that critical infrastructures and major corporations are falling victim to malicious cyber activities.  More recently, ransomware (WannaCry) and destructive malware (Not Petya) have resulted in bringing critical social services off line and have deeply affected the global economy.   There is an underground marketplace for weapons, services, and sensitive data — that is perpetuating the threat to society.

As a former security advisor to Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Ms. Hathaway will review the threats, economic impacts, and approaches for governments and corporations to increase their resilience and reduce their risks.

Topics include:

  • Critical cyber security infrastructure from legal, policy, and technical perspectives
  • Role of public-private partnerships in the cyber security of vital infrastructure and services
  • Development of effective cyber security strategies for your business

We hope you will join us for this important briefing.


Melissa Hathaway is a leading expert in cyberspace policy and cybersecurity. She served under two U.S. presidential administrations from 2007 to 2009, including more than 8 months at the White House, spearheading the Cyberspace Policy Review for President Barack Obama after leading the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) for President George W. Bush.

She is President of Hathaway Global Strategies LLC, a Senior Fellow and member of the Board of Regents at Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, a Distinguished Fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Canada, and a non-resident Research Fellow at the Kosciuszko Institute in Poland.

She was previously a Senior Adviser at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center.
