President Obama's Cyber Security Executive Order 13636 calls for an intensive effort to adopt a common national Framework aimed at reducing cyber risk to our country's critical infrastructure. This event, featuring White House Director of Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, Samara Moore, together with a panel of senior Administration officials, explores the wide-ranging impact the President's new policy will have on US industry. The White House Director will address the implications of the new Cybersecurity Framework on nearly all industries. Speakers provide insight on the proposed Framework on such critical infrastructure sectors as energy, finance, healthcare, communications, transportation, water, chemicals, IT, defense, manufacturing, and nuclear, among others. If you are responsible for cyber infrastructure, or if you are a supplier of goods or services to any organization in the DHS Critical Infrastructure – you will be impacted.  Be among the first to learn how the President's action will affect your company.
