Emerging Federal Markets "Legal Initiatives in Collaboration and Innovation"
Cybersecurity: The Government Market and Sharp Legal Edges
A panel discussion about the types of threats facing the nation's critical networks and IT systems. The panel will describe current and future legislative, regulatory, and voluntary public-private partnering initiatives to better protect Government and Industry networks and IT systems, including efforts to establish cybersecurity standards and information sharing. Also, the panel will describe the cybersecurity market -- the products and services sought by Government and commercial enterprises to enhance cybersecurity. Finally, the panel will address the legal, business, and mission risks facing agencies and contractors -- including contractual liabilities and other exposure -- as they work together to combat cyber threats under Government programs and during their day-to-day operations.
