Cybersecurity officials from the federal government discuss the implementation of information sharing regulation during FSR’s livecast event yesterday.

Brett DeWitt, Staff Director for the House Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies, said that the subcommittee and other committees will be collaborating on a significant amount of oversight work as the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense and other regulators work to implement cybersecurity information sharing legislation that passed Congress last December.

FSR’s event, “Next Steps to Fighting Cyber Threats: Implementing Cyber Information Sharing”, focused on how the cyber information sharing policy will be implemented, and the impact it will have on the government and private sector’s ability to battle cyber threats.

Other featured speakers included Josh Alexander, Professional Staff to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence; Gabriel Taran from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Leonard Bailey, Special Counsel for National Security at the U.S. Department of Justice; Edward Roback, Deputy Director of the Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Compliance Policy, U.S. Department of Treasury; John Carlson, Chief of Staff, FS-ISAC; Jeewon Kim Serrato, Counsel, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP; and Nathan Taylor, Partner, Morrison and Foerster.
