About Cyber Defense
Presidential Decision Directive (PDD-63) calls for the protection of Americans against attacks on physical facilities and computer systems. The directive outlines a coordinated, collaborative effort between all levels of government and the private sector to address and solve issues related to providing protection to critical infrastructures.
Recent events in the United States and in other parts of the world have focused considerable attention on the potential occurrence of major incidents of public terrorism. In our own country, such incidents have included the bombings of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, and the Olympic Park in Atlanta. Throughout the rest of the world there have been bombings and chemical weapon attacks in Japan, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Africa. The high level of concern about terrorism is reflected in the Presidents creation of a Presidential Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection and a White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security.
The trends of growth in broadband access given to employees and the greater connectivity of computer systems and networks need to be counterbalanced by a corresponding growth in technologies to prevent cyber-invasions. Current approaches, though useful, are insufficient against sophisticated perpetrators and cyber-terrorists. Attacks against our most vital computer networks represent a significant threat to our safety and security. Our critical infrastructure needs protection from acts of terrorism and crime with a rapid adaptability to natural or intentional disruptions.
Market*Access will host a training conference for industry and government focusing on agency needs and requirements in the area of Homeland Defense regarding Cyber Security, Network Infrastructure Protection and Cyber Terrorism. This will be a public-level series of training presentations on the challenges ahead. Speakers will represent federal agencies and leading security, equipment and systems suppliers.
The goal of this meeting is to begin to prepare U.S. government and industry for the changes that will come about regarding cyber defense.
