MITIGATING GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN THREATS WITH INTEROPERABILITY — FROM THREATS TO RESPONSE

At the speed our cyber threat landscape is evolving, dealing with the latest sophistication and dynamics requires you to apply a strategy efficiently and effectively to drive smarter security processes, uniting all resources behind a common defense and taking decisive action to keep your organization on course.

OASIS Open and The National Council of ISACs team up to bring you a two-day virtual cybersecurity program focused on interoperability strategies to help mitigate threats to one of our most critical global areas — Supply Chains.

The event will include a diverse hand-picked group of global cybersecurity experts that will share their views on the right combination of measures needed to ensure your cybersecurity strategy confidence reaches that next level.

Through a mixture of interactive panel discussions and presentations, you’ll hear how you can be part of the global collaboration effort and learn actionable advice needed to avoid being the next target.

About Borderless Cyber

Borderless Cyber is an international conference series that began in 2015. It’s designed to bring together the public and private sectors to evaluate, debate, and collaborate on cybersecurity best practices and solutions. Hosted by the OASIS Open Consortium, previous Borderless Cyber events were held in partnership with The World Bank in Washington, D.C., with the European Parliament in Brussels, with Keio University in Tokyo and with FIRST.org in Prague. The last few USA conferences were held at the U.S. Customs House in New York City and at The World Bank and National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
