Cybersecurity: When Hackers Attack: Are computers now the conventional front for hostilities? Michael Chertoff joins subject experts on Milken Global Conference discussion

President Obama has called attacks on U.S. computer networks "one of the most serious economic and national security threats our nation faces." The FBI's director recently warned IT professionals to be on the alert for organized cybercriminals, rogue hacktivists and breaches by foreign governments. Hackers have infiltrated banks, credit card companies, major retailers and defense contractors, pilfering consumer data and intellectual property. 
The Milken Institute presented international experts to discuss cybersecurity on a  panel at its Global Conference in May 2012.  Panelists:   
  1. Michael Chertoff, Chairman, The Chertoff Group; former Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  2. Shawn Henry, President, CrowdStrike Services; former Executive Assistant Director, FBI
  3. Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer, F-Secure
  4. Daniel McGahn, President and CEO, AMSC
  5. Moderator:  Marc Goodman, Founder, Future Crimes Institute; Global Security Advisor and Chair for Policy, Law and; Ethics, Singularity University

New measures to enhance cybersecurity are making their way through Congress, but will proposed federal standards really keep us one step ahead of the hackers? Can law enforcement handle a shadowy, constantly morphing enemy on the Internet - without further eroding privacy protections? How should governments, private firms and individuals respond to the threats?

Recorded at the Milken Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California.
