Cybersecurity Across Borders

The health, safety and welfare of our participants are top priorities. As such, we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.

As a precaution, GDIT and the GW Elliott School of International Affairs have elected to postpone the March 26 Cybersecurity Across Borders event in accordance with the safety guidelines provided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other health authorities.

We are actively looking into alternative dates for the event and remain committed to executing this important event in 2020. Your registration will automatically be applied to the rescheduled event, and we will reach out to you with a new date.

Cybersecurity Across Borders will explore the proliferation of technology and its impact on nation states as it relates to the protection of assets. Join us for a panel discussion featuring speakers from government, industry, and academia on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at The George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs in Washington, D.C.

Featured speakers include:

  • Michelle Howard, Admiral, U.S. Navy, Retired;

  • Dr. Matthew McFadden, Senior Director of Cyber and Lead for the Cyber Center of Excellence, GDIT
  • Dr. Costis Toregas, Director, Cyber Security and Privacy Research Institute, The George Washington University

This panel discussion is part of the Technology and Diplomacy Series hosted by GDIT and the Elliott School as a means of bringing together industry, academia and government to discuss important transnational issues that impact our national security and the vital diplomatic interests of the U.S.
