Cybersecurity in the Grey Zone

Governance & Citizenship in the Growing Intersection of Society and Technology

Join a diverse mix of experts and enthusiasts from industry, academia, and government for a full day of presentations, sharing of ideas, and networking for new engagement.

Our focus is on current and emerging cyber threats and defenses in the “cyber gray zone,” the growing intersection of society and technology. Our goal is to expand intelligent and informed conversations among diverse communities while also focusing them in on the critical area of practical steps toward upgraded engagement.
