BACKGROUND:  The United States established the Department of Homeland Security in 2003, and in February of the same year, launched the first National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. A decade later, how far have we come in securing cyberspace? Rogue regimes and nation states continue to target both the public and private sectors in efforts designed to harm our economy, our infrastructure and our citizens. How can we better protect the nation's interdependent systems from these threats? In this 10-year anniversary discussion at RSA 2013, Secretary Tom Ridge and former Cybersecurity Czar Howard Schmidt will be joined by moderator, Scott Hartz, CEO of TaaSERA, to look at the genesis of the national cybersecurity strategy, the growing range and sophistication of cyber attacks over the last ten years, and positive and achievable ways in which industry and government can work together to secure a very complex and dynamic cyber frontier.
