2022 Cyber Security Conference
The Future of Democracy in the Digital Age: A Transatlantic Discussion on Evolving Geopolitics and Cyber Security
November 30, 2022 marked the 9th annual French-American Foundation Cyber Security Conference: “The Future of Democracy in the Digital Age: A Transatlantic Discussion on Evolving Geopolitics and Cyber Security.”
In collaboration with the French-American Foundation—France, we gathered in Washington, D.C. at Greenberg Traurig, LLP for two days of intensive discussion and networking around the most pertinent cyber security challenges on both sides of the Atlantic. Nearly 100 cyber security experts from various backgrounds convened to attend panel discussions and roundtables led by senior defense officials based in France and the U.S. who addressed evolving geopolitics in a transatlantic national security context and the evolution of roles and responsibilities amid digital confrontation.
Major themes of the conference include the global reemergence of power competition; the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and resulting implications for the future of NATO; emerging ransomware and cyber threats to critical infrastructure; the rise of misinformation; and broader contemplations on transatlantic cooperation in cyber security.
The French-American Foundation extends sincere thanks to all who made the 2022 Cyber Security Conference a success, including members of the French-American Foundation Board, Cara LaPointe, General (ret.) Jean-Paul Paloméros, Jean-Louis Gergorin, and Greenberg Traurig, LLP.
This conference is co-organized by the two entities of the French-American Foundation based in New York and Paris. More information about the annual conference can be found here.
