3rd Annual Billington International CyberSecurity Summit
The Summit, which concluded yesterday, featured remarks by policy leaders that showed striking agreement that cyberspace had become normalized in policy and planning, no longer an exotic technical area accessible to specialists, but a domain where nations, businesses, and individuals lead much of their daily life.
Discussions noted the way in which "like-minded nations" were increasingly working collaboratively, both within alliance structures and bilaterally, to accept and manage common risk. In this context information-sharing has clearly become far less aspirational than it has been. US DHS Assistant Secretary Jeanette Manfra called for nations to begin thinking of cybersecurity as a matter of international digital public health.
There was also some ambivalence about innovation on display. Several speakers cautioned that novel technologies represented risk as well as opportunity.
