Please join the Atlantic Council for an interactive conference titled: “Building a Secure Cyber Future: Attacks on Estonia, Five Years On,” which will take place on Wednesday, May 23 at the Madison Hotel in Washington, DC.

Through a strategic discussion among key leaders and stakeholders, the conference will draw upon the lessons from planning in the Estonian experience, to ensure a more effective response to a similar major cyber incident in the future. The conference will feature representatives from Estonia, technical experts, practitioners from the private sector, and current and former US government officials. Each panel will focus on planning in different time periods: the successes and failures of planning prior to Estonia, planning and preparedness today, and how we will adapt to challenges five or ten years down the road.

If you have any questions regarding the conference, or would like to RSVP, please contact the Cyber Statecraft Initiative at[email protected] or 202.778.
