    If we’ve learned one thing from the pandemic it’s that cybercriminals do not take breaks. They are constantly retooling and trying new approaches. They collaborate—often better than we do. It is time for us to join forces, identify the most likely of risks to our organizations, and strengthen our networks. We’ve got to get our developers on board, as well, as it’s got to be secure before it goes to market. And what about all the careless clicking from employees?

    It’s a huge task, but we don’t have to do it alone. Join our panel of experts as they unpack the current threat landscape and offer ideas on how to start making effective changes within your organization.

    There’s a very good reason Russia has not deployed their latest cyber weapons against Ukraine. They’re saving them for the United States in what may be the beginning of a modern cold war played out in cyberspace. NATO has declared cyber to be an operational domain, and subject to Article 5 in case of a “massive” cyber attack. But what does “massive” mean? Russia will play the fringes in the gray space of policy to conduct low-intensity warfare, using their tools and tactics refined against adversaries like Ukraine. The result? Unrestricted warfare against our critical infrastructure, espionage operations targeting the software supply chain, and new cyberweapons.

I’m also responsible for coordinating CFTF outreach events which bring together our law enforcement and public and private sector partners for information sharing and training.
