9:20 – 9:50 AM NATIONAL SECURITY: ARE WE ALREADY AT WAR?

Our businesses and government have been repeatedly attacked by state actors – China and Russia, mainly. We've reportedly been a part of cyber-attacks or retaliations on North Korea and Iran. Are we already at war and are we winning? Is the US government doing enough to fight and win?

10:15 – 10:45 AM A CONVERSATION WITH THE DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE FBI

Law enforcement is facing an ever-evolving cyber landscape – new technological threats, foreign and domestic hackers, opaque links between foreign governments and cybercriminals. How is the FBI adapting?

12:00 – 12:30 PM WHERE BUSINESS AND CYBERTERROR COLLIDE: THE VIEW FROM THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

Hackers aren't just after credit card numbers or even social security numbers. Hackers can use information they steal from businesses for far worse crimes than identity theft or financial fraud. What is a 'blended threat,' and what do companies and individuals need to understand to respond to them?
