At this Forum, Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers will join Reiss Center Distinguished Senior Fellow Lisa Monaco in a wide-ranging conversation on the practice of national security law at the Department of Justice today. They’ll discuss a range of key issues and challenges, from Chinese economic and political espionage to Russian influence campaigns to the current state of international and domestic terrorism.

An unprecedented surge of cybercriminal activity is threatening our national and global security and economic stability. Safekeeping on the internet platform has collapsed. The present crisis in security, privacy, intellectual property and stored data is of a fundamental concern. In the next 5-10 years, a trillion sensors will be linked together as part of the “Internet of Things (IoT).”
The Law & Business Association at NYU School of Law is excited to host Alan Weinberger ’70, who founded the world’s oldest and largest community and network of Managed Service Providers (MSPs). Mr. Weinberger will discuss the IT industry’s structure and why MSPs have become vital to our national interests.

An effective response requires thoughtful, swift and sensible action to ensure the incident is detected, contained, mitigated and, when relevant, properly disclosed. To ensure success, leadership should consider cybersecurity risk and strategies holistically, throughout the entire organization, and prioritize core concerns. It is critical that the executive leadership team and board are sufficiently knowledgeable, and appropriately engaged, in cyber risk management as part of an enterprise-wide strategy.Read more >
