Georgetown Center for Financial Markets Hosts Cybersecurity Executive Order Roundtable

February 11, 2014

The Center for Financial Markets and Policy at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business hosted a discussion on the 2013 Cybersecurity Executive Order on Wednesday, January 29, in partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton.

The roundtable  examined the progress that has been made since Executive Order (EO) 13636 was release in February 2013, including the likely impact of the recently released Cybersecurity Framework on the Financial Services sector. Government and industry face important questions regarding how best to promote and implement the proposed framework, which was created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to help strengthen Cybersecurity among crucial infrastructure owners and operators. Roundtable participants discussed the important issues and address the Executive Order’s potential impact on cyber risk management practices within the financial services sector.

The hosts of the discussion are Reena Aggarwal, professor of finance and director of the Center for Financial Markets and Policy, and David Mader, senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton. Moderators include Catherine Lotrionte, visiting assistant professor in the School of Foreign Service and director of the Institute for Law, Science, and Global Security, and William Stewart, senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton.
