Kaye Scholer’s Golodner to Attend First-Ever White House Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection Summit
Kaye Scholer Global Cybersecurity & Privacy Group Leader Adam Golodner will be participating in the Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection hosted by President Barack Obama on February 13. This first-of-its kind cybersecurity “summit” will be held on the Stanford University campus and bring together senior leaders from the White House; top officials from the Department of Homeland Security; US Secret Service and the FBI; CEOs from a wide range of industries, including the financial services industry, technology, health care, electric, insurance and payments; consumer advocates; and policy and legal experts.
The all-day summit, which was organized by the White House and will be live-streamed on its website, is intended to accelerate discussions surrounding the pressing issues of increasingly persistent and sophisticated breaches and the best ways forward for effective cyberdefense in the future.
Expert panels will address critical topics, including:
- Public-Private Collaboration on Cybersecurity
- Improving Cybersecurity Practices at Consumer-Oriented Businesses and Organizations
- Promoting More Secure Payment Technologies
- Cybersecurity Information Sharing
- International Law Enforcement Cooperation on Cybersecurity
- Improving Authentication: Moving Beyond the Password
- Chief Security Officers’ Perspectives: New Ideas on Technical Security
In a press conference last month announcing the summit, President Obama called cybersecurity “a challenge that we can only meet together,” and highlighted the coming together of so many leading experts from so many areas “to make sure that we work through these issues in a public, transparent fashion.”
With a unique career spanning more than 20 years of leadership positions in business, academia and government, Adam is well recognized for providing high-impact strategic advice and resolving complex issues at the intersection of law, security, policy, technology, innovation and economics. He has deep experience with the issues facing private and public-sector clients in critical information infrastructure sectors and focuses on existing and proposed cybersecurity laws and policies and related national security, consumer protection and privacy issues.
