Cyber security conference: building confidence in digital transformation

November 12, 2021

We hosted our annual Cyber Security conference from November 30 to December 2. “The cyber security program is special because it is one of the few gatherings that brings together government and private sector experts at a very high level from both France and the United States to address top cyber security priorities,” said Cara LaPointe, Co-Director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Assured Autonomy and FAF Young Leader (2016). “The global pandemic has accelerated the shift to digital in many sectors, which is why we are excited for this year’s theme of Building Confidence in Digital Transformation. Cyber security is critically important in our increasingly digital world and everyone has a role to play, whether you’re a leader in the corporate world, the public sector, the military, or simply an individual interested in understanding how to protect yourself and your information online. We are bringing together all of these perspectives during this year’s conference, as we focus on the strategic relationship between the US and France.”

Since 2014, the Cyber Security conference has been organized in collaboration with the French-American Foundation–France. Each conference is designed around a specific theme in light of the most pressing concerns at the time: last year’s conference addressed cyber security and remote work; cyber security responses to the pandemic; election security; malware and ransomware attacks; transatlantic critical infrastructure; and more.
