The Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

July 14, 2016

The Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity will convene at the University of Houston on Thursday, July 14, to discuss the challenges and opportunities for securing critical infrastructure — essential assets such as electric utilities, oil and gas production, drinking water supply, rail systems, pipelines and transportation. Representatives from the energy, utilities and technology sectors as well as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are expected to discuss issues ranging from preventing cyber breaches, such as threats posed by hackers, foreign governments and terrorists, to keeping critical assets operating. Panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities for private industry, state and local governments to ensure the resiliency of critical assets.
