Now, he’s taking it to an industry crowd at the annual IT security forum, the RSA Conference.
Lynn will close out the keynote portion of the conference today, focusing on how the Pentagon protects is networks.
His speech will follow a number of presentations from cyber leaders in industry — such as Enrique Salem, the president and chief executive officer of Symantec, and academicians from MIT and Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science.
RSA said Lynn will sum up the threat landscape the Pentagon faces as well as the department’s strategy for dealing with it.
“Securing our networks is not only a national imperative, it is also one of the great technical challenges of our time–a challenge that will require unprecedented government and industry cooperation to solve,” he said.
Lynn, who will meet with executives from Intel and Google, is also expected to make a call for industry to develop technologies and solutions against the cyber threat.
DoD is working “aggressively” to protect its networks, he explained. “But the long-term solution is clearly in the industry’s hands,” he added. “To ensure our national and economic security, we must re-engineer the vulnerabilities inherent in today’s technology.”
