Cyber Security

Examining emerging cyber security challenges in a transatlantic context.

Cyber Security

The French-American Foundation has organized a variety of programs to facilitate an ongoing exchange of ideas, experience, and approaches to foreign and security policy. These programs have forged working relationships between military, government and corporate leaders on both sides of the Atlantic that form an effective partnership to face threats to security and stability worldwide.

In recent years, through its Cyber Security Program, the French-American Foundation has examined emerging cyber security challenges in a transatlantic context. This initiative builds on the earlier work of the French-American Defense Symposia (1996-2013), which provided a unique forum for senior military and government leaders to discuss key defense issues.

The French-American Foundation’s Cyber Security forums have met with great success: participants have included senior military officers, representatives of the White House, the Office of the French Prime Minister, and other key governmental officials, technology company CEOs, and academics of the highest caliber.

The 2017 Cyber Security conference addressed the theme of Information Security and Emerging Technologies, with a focus on such technologies as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, as well as threats to connected critical systems.
