Matthew Rhoades on Center for National Policy Cybersecurity Panel
Washington, D.C. – On Thursday, November 29th, The Truman Project’s Director of Legislative Affairs, Matthew Rhoades, was invited to speak on the Center for National Policy’s panel on cybersecurity.
Entitled Cyber Crime and the Economy: A Threat to National Security, the panel featured Rhoades and Matthew Fleming, a Professor at Georgetown University,
and a Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute Fellow.
Before a packed crowd, Rhoades gave insight into three critical aspects of the cybersecurity debate — both from the political and policy perspectives:
- The interest group politics of cybersecurity: national security leaders, privacy advocates, and business groups
- Legislative progress: failure in the 112th Congress but potential areas of success in 113th
- Potential areas of progress outside of Congress: the executive branch and the states
