Emerging technologies have become a dominant force in our society — driving economics, policy and culture, and accounting for more than U.S. $40 trillion in global nominal GDP.

Those driving forces will be at the forefront when the George Washington University hosts its first annual GW Business & Policy Forum on April 25th. This year’s theme is Attacking Cybersecurity Risks. The forum will bring together global leaders from both the private and public sectors to address the most significant issues related to the ever-evolving landscape of technology and cybersecurity with a focus on policy and regulation.

The full-day conference will include several panel discussions and chats on topics including the U.S. cybersecurity landscape, implications of the national cyber strategy, geopolitics and cyber warfare, and AI-powered cybersecurity. Confirmed speakers include: 

  • U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-Virginia)
