Endgame CEO Nate Fick will be holding a conversation with New York Times cybersecurity reporter Nicole Perlroth on “The Future of War” at the Computer History Museum on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 6:00pm. Nate and Nicole will be sitting down as part of the Museum’s Speaker Series to discuss current cybersecurity trends, the evolving threat landscape, and what the government, businesses, and organizations will need to do going forward to prepare.
“Cyber war isn’t some future hypothetical possibility — it’s here,” Nate Fick said. “Over the past several years, we’ve seen the importance of digital security burst into the public consciousness as many states and non-state groups have developed digital capabilities that challenge the US’s long-standing global security dominance. It’s past time for the government, companies, and the general public to evolve to meet this new reality.”
Nate and Nicole plan to address questions around how the US government is using technology to protect its citizens (and prosecute hackers), how the government should work with the private sector, what businesses can do to protect themselves from targeted, nation-state level attacks, and what our national cybersecurity policy looks like under President Donald Trump.
Event check-in begins at 6:00pm. The program will begin at 7:00pm and run until 8:30pm. The event will also be streamed live on the Computer History Museum’s Facebook page: facebook.com/computerhistory.
