On October 10, 2023, CNA’s National Security Seminar (NSS) series hosted a virtual panel discussion exploring how the cybersecurity frameworks used by today’s governments, corporations, and researchers hold up to the challenges of the future. This session built on the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) and the World Economic Forum Centre for Cybersecurity’s collaborative research initiative Cybersecurity Futures 2030.
David Kaufman, Vice President and Director of the Security and Safety Division with the CNA Institute for Public Research, provided opening remarks. The event also featured Dawn Thomas, Co-Director of CNA's Center for Emergency Management Operations and Director of the Center for Critical Incident Analysis with the CNA Institute for Public Research, and Alison Vernon, Senior Research Scientist at CNA. They were joined by Ann Cleaveland, Executive Director for CLTC, and Alan Cohn, a partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP and former Assistant Secretary for Strategy, Planning, Analysis & Risk with the Department of Homeland Security.
Dawn Thomas introduced the project, its goals, and how the team used scenarios to explore key research questions before Ann Cleaveland introduced the scenarios themselves. Speakers previewed some of the key findings that will be in a report released later this year, including regional differences observed across a series of six international workshops, before taking questions from the audience.
The full report and a full video from the event will become available after the official launch of CLTC’s Cybersecurity Futures 2030: Global Insights and Findings report with the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity in November 2023.
Approved for public release: distribution unlimited.
