Leveraging Public-Private Partnerships to Enhance National Cybersecurity

Public-private partnerships that take advantage of existing Executive Branch authorities can be a linchpin for success in cybersecurity efforts across government.

There is perhaps no better example than the Department of Energy and Department of Homeland Security partnering with utilities to identify gaps in cyber defenses and prioritize network investments.

Join us to hear about this model's inception and the lessons learned by DOE, DHS and their private sector partners for collaborating effectively to enhance national security.

Attendees of this event will gain:

  • An enhanced perspective on the current national security vulnerabilities that can be alleviated by public-private partnerships
  • How cyber information sharing between the public and private sector can work under existing authorities
  • An insightful preview into the new White House Executive Order regarding cybersecurity
