Event Description


Please join the Atlantic Council and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) for the second scenario-driven, interactive conference to discuss the day-after response to a cyber incident.

During this high-level public event, a small group of experts will represent various sectors, including government, finance, telecom, and press to discuss the decision-making process in light of a serious cyber security breach. During the course of the half-day conference, the scenario will continue to evolve, forcing experts to focus on key priorities and sector-specific concerns during a major cyber attack against the United States.

The goal of the conference is to encourage greater dialogue about the intricate decision-making process various sectors must face during a serious cyber conflict and shine light on the need for greater conversation on how to respond to cyber security issues.
