Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) has released draft legislation that would authorize individuals to “hack back” for purposes of identifying or stopping cyberattackers. Georgia Tech will host a public conversation to discuss the risks, liabilities, and new permissions this may bring to businesses and how that could impact the customer data they hold. We welcome the Electronic Frontier Foundation to participate in a discussion on May 1 at 10 a.m. in Midtown Atlanta.
Please see details below and RSVP. Seating is limited.
Cyber MayDay: Who Is in Command When Your Business is in the Crosshairs and How Do You Respond?
Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga. 14), in cooperation with the Georgia Institute of Technology, hosts a conversation for executives and thought leaders in Atlanta about cybersecurity policy and technical challenges that are stifling industry innovation today and leaving companies vulnerable. Of importance to discuss:
Who protects critical business infrastructure from cyberattacks? What forms of retaliation should be permissible? Should companies be allowed to take active-defense measures? What will deter hackers?
When governments engage in nation-state cyberattacks, how can businesses avoid becoming a proxy battleground?
How can public policy be improved to help industry and governments protect one another?
