Posted on in Presentations

Defend forward, the unclassified and publicly communicated cyber policy of the US Government that involves taking the cyber response to the adversaries, will require coordination on a number of different fronts. This session will explore a variety of improvements needed in information sharing and public/private partnerships, along with clear rules of engagement for active cyber response.

2. Understand the interplay between the public and private sector in implementing a defend forward strategy.
3. Realize that active cyber response can be an important component in a defend forward strategy.
