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?


Featuring a diverse and bipartisan panel:

  • Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga. 14), Chairman, House Committee on Appropriations: Subcommittee on Financial Services & General Government
  • Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz. 9), House Committee on Financial Services
