Who: InfraGard Members and Guests (this meeting is open to the public)
What: Implications and Implementation of EO 13636 and PPD-21 on Cybersecurity
When: Tues., 05/14/13 from 11:00a - 1:30p
Where: Hogan Lovells, 555 13th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004 (conveniently located near the Metro Center metro station on the red line and Federal Triangle metro station on the blue/orange line)
Why: On February 12, 2013, Executive Order (EO) 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cyber Security, and Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) 21, Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, were signed by President Obama. Together, these actions update the national approach to cybersecurity, specifically as it relates toour Nation's critical infrastructure, by adjusting to the current, and continually evolving, cyber threat environment. The interdependent nature of critical infrastructure is both in the physical realm and in cyber space. We rely on cyber systems to run our transportation systems, facilitate our banking transactions, and bring water and energy to our homes; yet we still must protect these entities from physical threats too - manmade or natural. By establishing a framework which allows for enhanced information sharing between critical infrastructure stakeholders, owners, and operators and the US government, the security and resiliency of critical infrastructure assets will be increased.
Join us for a discussion of the implications and implementation of EO 13636 and PPD-21. How will companies be affected? Will additional cybersecurity legislation follow that allows the government to better address the dynamic cyber threat?
