Earlier this week, administration officials announced creation of a Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center to collect and disseminate information on cyber threats. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the summit, including CEOs of some of the largest financial, technology and insurance companies, privacy and civil liberties experts and numerous administration officials from across government. The event will include multiple panel sessions.
The entire event will be live-streamed on the White House’s website. “Stanford is very engaged in studying cyber-related issues, and we look forward to enhancing this work by sharing our expertise on the cybersecurity issues that are so critical for the United States, its consumers and its businesses,” said Amy Zegart, co-director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. Missing from the list of panelists and speakers are officials from the U.S. intelligence community, such as the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency.
