On July 17, the leadership of the Simons Center and the Command and General Staff College Foundation met with leaders from the Kansas City Federal Executive Board and the heads of regional federal agencies at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center in Kansas City, Mo. The event was co-hosted by the Kansas City chapter of Business Executives for National Security.
Participants included representatives from Business Executives for National Security, FBI, FEMA, USDA, Terrorist Early Warning Center, the U.S. Secret Service and the Kansas City Federal Executive Board. The group discussed challenges and possible solutions to cyber threats, as well as cybersecurity and the security and compliance needs of federal agencies and large corporations.
The purpose of Thursday’s meeting was to consider what topics related to cybersecurity would be the most advantageous and relevant to incorporate into the CEO roundtables the Simons Center will be hosting later this year.
