NIST-Stanford Executive Technical Workshop on Improving Cybersecurity and Consumer Privacy

In coordination with the President's upcoming Cybersecurity Summit, NIST and Stanford University will co-host a workshop on February 12, 2015 for chief technology and security executives to discuss implementing advanced cybersecurity and privacy technologies in consumer-facing organizations.

Meeting current challenges in cybersecurity will require coordinated, collective approaches by people from industry, government, and academia. This workshop will convene a community of business leaders to discuss ways to realize cybersecurity best practices in real-world conditions. The workshop hosts hope these discussions will prioritize the community's efforts to develop strong cybersecurity and privacy programs, and inform projects undertaken at NIST, Stanford, and the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence that will accelerate the deployment and use of secure, standards-based technologies in consumer-facing sectors.
