Summit Speaker Jason Brown

Session Information

Panel: Securing the Defense Industrial Base
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 1:45 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) is comprised of thousands of companies and relationships, with each company presenting a target to cyber adversaries. Rather than attacking the DoD directly, cyberterrorists instead attack the DIB, both large corporations and smaller, more specialized companies as they believe these companies to be less mature in their data protection. The strategy of cybercriminals is simple, yet effective: attack the presumably less cybersecurity mature companies and use this infiltration as a point of entry into the DIB. These infiltrations put the entire supply network at risk, and, subsequently, the United States’ national security. There is no shortage of examples of these intrusions, and the cyber threat continues to grow. Safeguarding our national security is paramount, and demands every threat be acknowledged, identified, addressed, and monitored. It is imperative to the continued success of the United States to effectively face these threats head on, but, a recognition of the highest risks must first be established.
