Mr. Lee will participate in the session entitled Cyber-Security and the New Administration at 3:15 p.m. on June 3.

Amid reports of organized hacking attacks on US government computers, cyber-security has recently become a hot topic and the Obama Administration has made it a priority. But what is the best way to improve the security of the nation's cyber-infrastructure? What policies are in place already and are being proposed, by which Government agencies can seek to monitor and protect the cyber-infrastructure? What are the privacy and civil liberties implications of such policies? This session is complemented by the session on "Hacking as a National Security Threat: How Real Is It?"

Other participants in this session:

  • Hon. Alan M. Grayson (D-FL): U.S. House of Representatives, Orlando, Florida
  • Prof. Ed W. Felten: Director, Center for Information Technology Policy, Princeton University
  • Moderator: Andrew Grosso: Principal Attorney, Andrew Grosso & Associates, former Assistant U.S. Attorney
