Watch live: The future of America's cyber strategy

Join Passcode for a conversation with senior policymakers – including the State Department Cybersecurity Coordinator Chris Painter and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Cyber Policy Aaron Hughes – to discuss America's emerging strategy in cyberspace.

Check back here at 9 am for live video of America's Cyber Strategy . Sign up for Passcode's email newsletter for further updates here and tweet to join the conversation at #CSMStrategy.

It's a turning point for America's cybersecurity policy. Washington is debating how to respond as countries such as China are suspected of targeting its government networks and interests online, and as militants in groups such as the Islamic State ramp up their digital presence.

We’ll discuss how the State Department is navigating the new diplomatic frontier of the Digital Age, as norms for countries’ behavior online are still developing. We’ll chat with senior Pentagon leaders about whether there’s a role for offense in its strategy, which has long focused on bolstering cyberdefenses, and if deterrence a viable option. This Passcode event comes as Defense Secretary Ashton Carter continues his push out West to woo Silicon Valley. Can the government get the tech – and the talent – it needs to carry out its goals?
