National Town Hall on Cybersecurity

May 2, 2011

Cyberspace has emerged as the “fourth commons” after sea, air, and space in the defense world, and a broad variety of private and public networks make up the critical infrastructure that enables governments to provide essential services. The network has become both a platform for innovation and a mission-critical resource for the civilian, defense, and intelligence operations of governments. - Cisco’s Don Proctor, SVP -- Office of the CEO

The growing number of attacks on our cyber networks has become, in President Obama’s words, “one of the most serious economic and national security threats our nation faces.”  Addressing these issues means working across the government, partnering with the private sector, and empowering the general public to create a safe, secure, and resilient cyber environment, and promote cybersecurity knowledge and innovation.

If you are, or want to be part of this effort, please join us at the National Town Hall on Cybersecurity, a provocative on-line discussion, May 24th at 1:00 PM ET.

  1. I don’t know what to worry about more, our government monitoring our every move, or groups like Anonymous launching cyber attacks, in which innocent people could get caught up in.
