Stevens Institute of Technology to host Cyber Security Policy Conference, Jan. 19-20

December 14, 2009

HOBOKEN, N.J. & WASHINGTON, D.C. - In January in our nation's capital, Stevens Institute of Technology will host a unique conference that will closely examine national and global cyber security policy.

In an age where so much data and communication is centered on the Internet, it is vitally important that governments, commercial and corporate entities along with private citizens are working towards securing these critical infrastructure systems.

Stevens, a New Jersey-based technological university, has number of funded academic and research programs dedicated to cyber security and will lead the Global Cyber Security Policy Conference, January 19-20, 2010, at its new facility in the Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.

The conference will take a holistic and whole-of-society view of the implications of working with and controlling for the betterment of society what has become known as the Cyberspace Domain.

"The three major segments of Government must collaborate in a way that the public can understand and support in order to preserve the best aspects of the Internet and to overcome burgeoning threats to our privacy, critical infrastructure, and potentially to our very way of life," said Dr. Joseph Mitola III, Vice President for the Research Enterprise, Stevens Institute of Technology.

The conference comes at a time when President Barak Obama hopes to "initiate a national public awareness and education campaign to promote cyber security."

Conference participants will adopt a CEO perspective on cyber security issues and will hear from policy decision makers in both government and industry with greater clarity in evaluating tradeoffs among cyber security mandates and other objectives of their respective missions.

All points of view from panelists and participants alike will be thoughtfully considered and fully reflected in the resulting plain-talk Report to the Congress and the American People: The 2010 Cybersecurity Policy Guidebook.
