U.S. Chamber of Commerce Third Annual Cybersecurity Summit
U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 1615 H Street NW, Washington, DC
Oct 28, 2014


Cybersecurity experts often say that there are two types of businesses: Those that have been hacked and know it, and those that have been hacked and don’t know it yet. As large businesses strengthen their cyber protections, small and medium-size businesses are increasingly the victims of malicious actors.

In February 2014, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released a new cybersecurity framework to help businesses start a cybersecurity program or improve an existing one. The framework was developed in collaboration with public and private organizations, including companies, trade associations, and the U.S. Chamber’s Cybersecurity Working Group.

The framework features a number of industry-vetted actions that businesses can take to assess and strengthen their state of security over time. It provides organizations—including their customers, partners, and suppliers—with common language for understanding their current cybersecurity posture, setting goals for cybersecurity improvements, and much more.

The third annual Cybersecurity Summit will feature remarks and presentations from government and corporate cybersecurity executives. 

Time: 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.
