Security & Intelligence Forum: Cyber in a Changing World
During this half-day Forum, participants will collectively explore the theme: Cyber in a Changing World: How to Engage With an Unknown Future. We will focus on aspects of the new cyber reality and the challenges and vulnerabilities it presents, and examine cyber activity as both threat and response, speculate on future possibilities, and explore the new leadership environment which is emerging.
Participants will engage in discussions with eachother and with experts in the field using a process called Open Space Technology, a method known internationally for its simple but productive and spirited meetings. Forum participants will create the agenda according to what discussion topics are of interest to them. Participants will then be able to choose the discussions in which they would like to engage throughout the morning.
Cyber tools now enable terrorism and global crime as well as legitimate business activity. Cyber intrusions directed at siphoning off critical intellectual property, or at attacking and crippling critical infrastructure, have changed the relationship between private sector companies and public security and intelligence agencies. Both must now combine their knowledge and resources to protect the national public interest and anticipate and defeat destructive attacks.
Your role is to draw from your knowledge and experience in cyber security & intelligence and leadership and contribute through dialogue to the discussions on the emerging themes identified by Forum participants related to the topic of the day. We know that all of the Program participants and guests, like you, have relevant experience and/or ideas on the subject.
Preparation: The only thing you need to do to prepare for the Forum is to reflect on the following question: "What are the ideas, questions, possibilities and strategies I want to explore on the security and intelligence leadership required to navigate an uncertain future of cyber?”
Think about a few topics you may wish to raise. You will not have to give a presentation and you will participate in discussions of your choice.
