Collective Defense Cybersecurity Strategies for the Expanding Digital Landscape

05 Oct 2021
Keynote 2021

The frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks are on the rise as the remote work model continues to expand, and techniques like ransomware become a more enticing and profitable venture for adversaries. From his experience as NSA director and first commander of U.S. Cyber Command, General (Ret.) Keith Alexander tells the story of the government's limited ability to defend against cyberattacks due to the limited visibility agencies had into the threats that the private sector was experiencing. A Collective Defense approach can provide companies, sectors ' even entire nations ' a more effective defense against these massive, coordinated cyber attacks. General Alexander will discuss new industries adopting this model, including the commercial space sector, and how this collaborative approach can transform how the world addresses cybersecurity defense.
