The Cybersecurity Tech Accord and the Global Cyber Alliance are delighted to invite you to their first joint event in Washington, where they will discuss, together with policy-makers, existing and emerging efforts being undertaken at government and industry level to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace. Launched in April 2018, the Cybersecurity Tech Accord is the largest-ever cybersecurity alliance gathering more than 40 companies vowing to protect and empower civilians online from evolving cyberthreats. In their pledge to build a safer online world, they have partnered with like-minded organizations such as the Global Cyber Alliance, which has made eradicating cyber risk its mission. The event will be an opportunity to hear more about their initiatives and reflect on what else needs to be done in the path to a secure cyberspace. Discussion panels and workshops will focus on industry and policy perspectives on the challenges we face now and how we can address them to improve the future by promoting coordinated approaches to cyber defense in the US and around the globe. Topics of discussion will include the economic return on investing in cyber security, email security, and responsible vulnerability handling.
