This gathering promotes dialogue among policymakers, academics, and key industry stakeholders from across the globe, and explores the worldwide community’s increasing interconnectivity in this domain. Drawing on the experience of government practitioners, industry representatives and academic scholars, this event brings a multidisciplinary and international approach to the challenges in cyberspace from technical, corporate, legal, and policy perspectives in both the United States domestic and international realms.
