Shields Ready – Why Resilience is the Most Important Security Measure for Critical Infrastructure | Jenn Easterly, Director, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)

The U.S. intelligence community and our closest geopolitical allies are in resounding agreement on who is the largest global security threat of the twenty-first century: The People’s Republic of China (PRC). They’ve warned that the PRC is almost certainly capable today of launching cyberattacks that could disrupt the critical infrastructure Americans rely on daily, such as oil and gas pipelines, rail systems, and healthcare facilities. Impacts of such malicious cyber activity would likely go beyond network intrusion and data theft – with the potential to jeopardize the physical security of our institutions and the public. And in a Presidential election year, the PRC’s attempts to influence U.S. election operations is anticipated to exceed those already detected from previous cycles. As America’s cyber defense agency and the national coordinator for critical infrastructure security and resilience, CISA is driving proactive risk reduction efforts in the face of these most pressing threats. Join CISA Director Jen Easterly for a discussion on how we can broaden our resilience investments and utilize collaborative partnerships – across industry, government, and communities – to ensure our nation is secure and increase our ability to respond and recover to the ever-evolving threat landscape presented by our greatest adversaries.

Wednesday, 25 September: Military & Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
Leadership and Accountability When It Matters | Commander Kirk Lippold, United States Navy (RET.)

Navigating the dual facets of privilege and burden in leadership demands a level of accountability that many aspire to achieve. In the aftermath of a harrowing suicide terrorist attack, Commander Kirk Lippold intricately weaves the principle of integrity into a narrative that extends beyond crisis management. He reveals how this principle fosters a diverse and inclusive environment, empowering his crew with a profound sense of ownership. In this crucible of combat, personal accountability and leadership become guiding principles. Lippold’s “Pillars of Leadership” emerge not only as invaluable business tenets but essential foundations for any team weathering challenges.

During Military & Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (MLEAD), all military, law enforcement, and first responders receive free one-day admission to GSX. To learn more about MLEAD, please visit www.GSX.org/MLEAD.

The full educational lineup for GSX 2024 will be released in early May.
