Cybersecurity: Risks and Recourse

Daniel Prieto

CEO of Incubate and former Director
Cybersecurity Policy
National Security Council

Daniel B. Prieto has worked for two decades in the private sector, government, and academia at the intersection of technology, public policy, and national and homeland security issues, including service as the Director of Cybersecurity and Technology in the Department of Defense, where he led the development of cybersecurity strategy and policy. Mr. Prieto is the author of numerous publications on cybersecurity, including Meeting the Cybersecurity Challenge: Empowering Stakeholders and Ensuring Coordination and Global Movement Management: Commerce, Security, and Resilience in Today’s Networked World. Mr. Prieto’s presentation focused on the highly integrated, complex economic systems that move people, goods, conveyances, money and information around the world today, creating a circulatory system for the global economy, which he refers to as the “global movement system.”

Global movement systems embody a unique intersection of public and private interests, Mr. Prieto said.  However, the tight integration of global systems means that disruptions that may seem small or localized at first, can rapidly magnify, spill over into other systems and cause more serious harm that is difficult to envision or predict.  Mr. Prieto discussed the range of invasive activities that can occur in cyberspace, the impacts of those disruptions, and strategies for the States to provide cybersecurity legislation to protect their citizens.
