Recently, Americans have seen the real-world ramifications of cyber-attacks. Just this year, we have seen a major oil and gas artery be shut down on the East Coast causing short-term fear and price surges, shutdowns at major meat-processing plants, and a tampering of a water treatment facility in Florida. Global cyber ransomware, espionage, and targeted attacks could lead to an expansion of attacks on critical infrastructure, U.S. national security, and economic targets.

Policymakers have sprung into action in recent years. There are lines of effort to address the persistent and ever-growing threat and economic damage of ransomware attacks to the security of the government’s own systems and communications. The complexities of cybersecurity require a relationship between the private sector and the government but that has proven challenging. Join a timely conversation with former Director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and former Commander, U.S. Cyber Command, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, USN (Ret.), on where the United States goes from here on cyber and what must be done to secure both the strategic and the tactical high ground in the future of modern warfare.
