In January, the National Security Agency issued its first Cybersecurity Year in Review, detailing the agency’s progress in preventing and removing threats to U.S. systems and critical infrastructure in 2020.

The emergence of COVID-19 made Intelligence Community efforts to improve cybersecurity a critical element in the nationwide effort to contain the pandemic. The widespread implementation of telework, by both the private sector and all levels of government, expanded the attack surfaces for bad actors.

Operation Warp Speed, the program developing vaccines to protect the U.S. and the world, required protection from malicious interests. Similarly, the 2020 presidential election needed to be secured from foreign interference.

Join us for an in-depth examination of ways to mitigate risk in critical systems and cyber environments in these volatile times.
