The first weeks of the Biden-Harris Administration have marked a turning point in many areas of U.S. foreign policy. One area that has received significant attention, in part due to the recent SolarWinds hack, is cyber security, for which the new Administration has announced an urgent initiative to improve the nation's capability, readiness and resilience, as well as its commitment to defending the nation against cyberattacks. Join the NCAFP as we host a distinguished panel that will discuss the policy implications of the SolarWinds attack, and the overall direction of U.S. policy relevant to cybersecurity in the Biden Administration.

The event will be conducted via the video conferencing platform Zoom, which works on PC, Mac, or mobile devices. You do not need to create an account to use it. Guests will have the option to join the meeting through the Zoom application, or by calling in by phone.

In order to streamline the Q&A portion of the conversation, all guests will have their video feeds disabled.  We ask that guests submit all questions through the Q&A function or the chat box.  If you don't wish to use these functions, or will join by phone, please submit questions in advance or real time to [email protected] .
