On October 25, AmCham and the Overseas Advisory Security Council (OSAC) presented a briefing on the cybersecurity of critical infrastructure with Melissa Hathaway, former cybersecurity advisor to U.S. Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Business leaders and cybersecurity executives gathered at Microsoft’s facility in Lyngby to hear and update about the latest threats to infrastructure, and how to protect their own organizations.

With the combination of the huge economic opportunity in the digital agenda, poorly engineered products flooding quickly to market and the broad availability of tools and motive to exploit the system, we have a growing “cyber insecurity’ challenge. Ms. Hathaway underscored the need for all businesses to recognize that they are ‘technology’ companies, as they all operate using technology platforms, then step up to protect themselves, which in turn protects the critical infrastructure of the environments in which they operate. 

Ms. Hathaway also stressed the importance of public-private partnership in the protection of our infrastructure. Sharing information with government and other businesses is critical, if we are going to avoid major energy, healthcare or financial infrastructure attacks.
