Cyber Security and Digital Identity

Washington, D.C. - Invite Only

Cyber Security and Digital Identity

Each year, the Cyber Security Conference assembles senior defense officials based in France and the US to discuss the most pertinent challenges to cyber security on both sides of the Atlantic. This year’s program, titled “Cyber Security and Digital Identity,” will discuss the balance between ensuring security in cyberspace and protecting personal information and privacy. Through a series of panel and group discussions, the two-day seminar will address topics from French and American cyber security priorities to anonymity online.

Held under the Chatham House Rule, the invite-only conference will host members of French parliament, NATO, and the White House, among others. Taking place on September 25-26, the event will be the fifth consecutive seminar of its kind at the French-American Foundation. The Conference, a joint effort by the Foundations in the US and France, is led by a Steering Committee directed by Jean-Paul Paloméros, former Supreme Allied Commander Transformation at NATO. In addition, we are proud to appoint Cara LaPointe as Program Director for this year’s Cyber Security program. Cara is an American Young Leader from the class of 2016 and a Senior Fellow at the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University.
