Congressman Tom Graves To Hold Cybersecurity Discussion

Congressman Tom Graves (R-GA-14), in conjunction with Georgia Tech, will be hosting a discussion on cybersecurity and what public policy would be beneficial in fighting cyber criminals on May 1st from 10a ’til 12p at the Technology Square Research Building (TSRB) Auditorium at Georgia Tech.  From a presser:

Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) in cooperation with the Georgia Institute of Technology will hold a cybersecurity event in Atlanta on May 1, which will feature a bipartisan, multisector panel discussion about whether public policy can help individuals and businesses go on offense to defeat and unmask cyberattackers.

Last month, Rep. Graves proposed the Active Cyber Defense Certainty Act (ACDC) as a discussion draft. The draft bill makes changes to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) to allow the use of limited defensive measures that exceed the boundaries of one’s network in an attempt to identify and stop attackers. Once a cybercriminal is identified, the victim can share that information with law enforcement or try to disrupt an ongoing attack. Click HERE to read more about ACDC.

The title of the discussion is “Is it time to go on offense? A conversation about active defense in cyberspace.”
