From Jim Garrettson, Executive Mosaic President & Founder
Over the next year, DARPA will evaluate the capabilities and employees contractors can offer as it looks to build cyber operations systems and protect critical cyber infrastructure.
With just this kind of collaboration in mind, the Potomac Officers Club hosted its “Federal Critical Infrastructure Summit” Wednesday for government and industry leaders to discuss how to best collaborate to protect and bolster the U.S.’ critical infrastructure.
Speakers included Dr. Harvey Davis, NSA director of installations and logistics; Dr. Timothy Unruh, director of the Federal Energy Management Program; former DHS Cybersecurity Deputy Undersecretary Mark Weatherford & Ed Goetz, VP & chief security officer at Exelon.
The cyber-related conversation will continue April 9 as POC hosts the “2014 GovCon Cyber Summit,” which will feature a host of leaders from the legislative and executive branches, as well as the private sector.
Mike Rogers and Dutch Ruppersberger, the top two lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee, will share their perspectives on Capitol Hill’s role in cybersecurity, while the executive branch will be represented by the FBI’s Joe Demarest, DHS’ Bobbie Stempfley, and Michael Daniel, special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator for the White House’s national security staff.
Steven Chabinsky, senior vice president of legal affairs and chief risk officer at CrowdStrike, will lend his perspective from time in the private and public sectors and be joined by Stewart Baker, a partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP.
