The Center for Law Science and Innovation’s Faculty Director Gary Marchant is scheduled to speak on a Cyber security panel during the annual Attorney General Alliance conference in Hawaii. The multiday conference covers a variety of topics, including cannabis regulation, environmental justice, COVID-19’s impact on legal issues, and much more. The Attorney General Alliance’s mission is to serve as a host forum as well as help initiate meetings, panels and discussions to foster bipartisan cooperation in the Attorney General community.
Marchant is set to speak on the third day of the conference, on a panel titled “Cybersecurity Resilience.” Joining Marchant on the panel will be Cristin Flynn Goodwin, Assistant General Counsel of the Digital Security Unit, Microsoft’s Customer Security and Trust Organization, Hon. Lisa Madigan, former Attorney General of Illinois (2003-2010) & Partner, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, and Hon. Peter Harvey, former Attorney General of New Jersey (2003-2006) & Partner, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP.
The panelists will explore how policy goals in the United States have advanced efficiency and equity concerns, and recently resilience as a policy goal has been receiving increased attention- especially in cybersecurity. Recent events in the past couple years have led to systems and institutions evaluating their cybersecurity for resilience. The Texas power market shocks, wildfires and forest health concerns, cyber-attacks on infrastructure and water management issues are some of the areas where the concept of resilience is ready to be implemented. The panel will address the overall concept of resilience and the role it plays in the context of cybersecurity.
