Securing the future: governance, protection and accountability

The Chatham House hosts Cyber 2019 event on 20-21 June 2019.

Andrew Sullivan, our President and CEO will be speaking on a panel on 20 June, 11:30-13:00.

What Are the Roles of Industry and Government in Cyberspace?

As NATO employs a collective defensive strategy to protect member states, should companies across sectors work more closely with government to mirror this form of alliance and better defend businesses, states and citizens? This session considers what role government and industry should play in cyberspace, and how formal collaboration can help combat cybercrime.

  • How can collaboration on intelligence, methodology and resources between states and businesses be improved? Are developing nations supported in building capacity to deal with cybercrime with the private sector? 
  • How prepared are governments and companies for the current cyber threat landscape?
  • How are they preparing for new and evolving threats?
  • How should technology companies and government interact regarding sharing information about vulnerabilities?
  • How can both sides be incentivized to disclose vulnerabilities responsibly?
  • In terms of support and financial insurances, what can companies expect from a government in a cyberattack?


  • Gordon Corera, Security Correspondent, BBC


  • John Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, United States Department of Justice
  • Andrew Sullivan, President and CEO, Internet Society 
  • Patricia Zorko, Deputy National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism; Director of the NCTV’s Cybersecurity Department

Note: This event will be held under the Chatham House Rule
