July 11, 2014 – No government agency or private corporation is immune today from cyber-attack, network penetration and loss of sensitive data. The panel “Targeting a Secure Future” at this year’s TPI Aspen Forum will examine whether the current approach to cyber-security is making any headway against this epidemic. Panelists, including key federal policymakers and private sector experts, will explore the government’s responsibility to protect the private sector as well as companies’ obligations (and abilities) to protect their own networks. Given that an effective public-private partnership is broadly viewed as necessary to advance cybersecurity, the panelists will also address whether treating companies that have been hacked as culprits, rather than victims, is sound public policy.

Confirmed panelists are:

Hon. Julie Brill, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission

Hon. Michael Daniel, Special Assistant to the President and Cybersecurity Coordinator

Nick Rossi, Deputy Staff Director, U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation (invited)

Craig Silliman, Senior Vice President, Public Policy, Verizon

Hon. Suzanne Spaulding, Under Secretary, National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), U.S. Department of Homeland Security

The discussion will be moderated by Alan Raul, Partner and Lead Global Coordinator, Privacy, Data Security and Information Law Practice at Sidley Austin LLP.

An updated TPI Aspen Forum agenda is now available and registration can be performed on the TPI website. For additional information, please contact Jane Creel at [email protected]. Members of the press can contact Amy Smorodin at [email protected] for complimentary registration.
