Cybersecurity Conference Report

Cybersecurity continues to be one of the biggest challenges we face as a nation.

The partnership among George Mason University, IBM and the National Science Foundation (NSF) has led to two research projects—one focusing on cybersecurity leadership and the second on securing SCADA systems and the next generation smart grid.

For the second time, a diverse group of CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, and smart grid experts as well as policy makers from across the government, private sector, and academia, both domestic and international participated in a dynamic conference to provide insights on current and compelling cybersecurity issues.

Those insights are captured in the second Mason-IBM-NSF Cybersecurity Conference Report, now available for download.

What You'll Find Inside:

  • Cybersecurity leadership

  • Developing a cybersecurity program 

  • Cybersecurity for the smart grid

The next steps of the Mason-NSF project are continuing a series of CISO interviews, CISO focus groups and roundtable discussions, and the publishing of a report on CISO core competencies in spring 2016.
