Cybersecurity experts are meeting in Dallas this week, but the focus is not on the latest system exploit or reverse code engineering. As the international hacking incidents increases and countries struggle to get a handle on it, The Worldwide Cybersecurity Summit, organized by the EastWest Institute think tank, is an attempt to get governments all on the same page.
“It’s reaching across the table,” said Raduege, who is honorary chair of the conference. “It’s not official U.S. policy that’s going to be put out there, but it’s an opportunity to exchange ideas of the possible.”
Scheduled speakers include Howard Schmidt, the White House’s cybersecurity coordinator, as well as other influential cybersecurity officials from the European Union, Canada, Japan, India and China. Also on the agenda are the CEOs of AT&T Inc. and computer maker Dell Inc. and executives from Microsoft Corp. and Huawei Technologies Co., China’s biggest maker of telecommunications equipment.
The Topic that tops the list? Cyber Warfare. Read more about the conference at Physorg.com.
