Can the U.S. Shore Up its National Cybersecurity Defenses?


In an era where cyber threats loom larger and more sophisticated, the urgency to bolster national cybersecurity defenses has never been more critical. With government watchdogs highlighting gaps in performance measures and cost assessments, and recent breaches underscoring vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, the stakes are high. How can the U.S. align its cybersecurity strategies across various stakeholders to effectively counter the evolving threat landscape?

Experts Talk, hosted by Daniel Litwin, the Voice of B2B at MarketScale, dives into this pressing issue with a panel of seasoned professionals: Stevan Bernard, Dr. Jude Ejiobi, John Petrozzelli, and Krista Macomber.
