The Cyber Infrastructure Protection 2011 Conference
• View the Webcast
This two-day conference, held June 8 and 9, 2011, focused on the critical issues of cyber-security strategy and policy—an issue headlining the news continually as businesses and governments find their systems under relentless attack by cyber warriors who introduce new viruses, worms, and bots capable of defeating the best efforts of security professionals. Through the Cyber Infrastructure Protection Conference, government, business and academia leaders gathered in New York at City College to deepen their understanding of the threat, to examine various modes of fighting cyber attacks, and to establish and enhance a framework for deep analysis for this multidimensional issue.
Presented by the Center of Information Networking and Telecommunications (CINT) at the Grove School of Engineering, the Colin Powell Center for Public Policy, and the Institute of Strategic Studies (SSI) at the Army War College, the conference provided a state of the art assessment of the vulnerability of our cyber infrastructure and provided strategic policy directions for the protection of such infrastructure. The event follows and deepens a 2009 conference on the same subject.
Dr Tarek Saadawi of the City University of New York, City College and Colonel Louis Jordan of the US Army War College led the conference as co-chairs.
