Many of the nation’s foremost authorities on cybersecurity will gather in Oak Ridge Jan. 8-12 for the inaugural Cyber Sciences Laboratory workshop. The event will feature 10 plenary keynotes, including Richard Clarke, author of CYBER WAR: The Next Threat to National Security and What to do About it. Also on the agenda are four plenary panels, 44 research talks and 20 research posters. Researchers from nine Department of Energy laboratories will focus on emerging strategies for cost-effective deterrents to cyber attacks.
“The future of America’s prosperity hinges on rebalancing cyberspace to mitigate threats and maximize benefits, ensuring security and privacy in a constantly changing adversarial environment,” said ORNL’s Frederick Sheldon, general chair. Sheldon expects 350-plus participants and more than 30 industry and academic sponsors.
