About the Campaign

The Chamber has been leading on cybersecurity for years. In 2014, it launched a new comprehensive campaign under the banner Improving Today. Protecting Tomorrow to advance cybersecurity policies and legislation while educating businesses of all sizes about cyber threats and how to protect against them. For a third year in a row, the Chamber is continuing the cybersecurity campaign with three regional roundtables planned in advance of its Fifth Annual Cybersecurity Summit on September 27.

 

Regional Cybersecurity Events

Regional cybersecurity events bring together leading voices from the public and private sector to discuss both the possibilities and challenges in achieving effective cybersecurity. Each event typically features speakers and panel discussions with cybersecurity principals from the White House, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), FBI, Secret Service, and top executives from leading corporations.

Partnering with local chambers and business associations, the Chamber has hosted regional cybersecurity events all around the country:  

  • Austin, Texas
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Seattle, Washington
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Durham, North Carolina
  • Detroit, Michigan
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Schaumburg, Illinois

The Chamber and its partners urge businesses to adopt fundamental Internet security practices to reduce network and system weaknesses and make the price of successful hacking increasingly steep.

The Chamber’s cybersecurity campaign relies on sponsors to execute effectively. The campaign offers organizations several sponsorship opportunities on a variety of range of levels. To learn more about sponsoring click here.

Cybersecurity Working Group

The Chamber’s Cybersecurity Working Group (CWG) identifies cutting-edge issues, crafts policies and positions, and provides analysis and advocacy to government and business leaders. The efforts of the CWG influence the economic and security bottom lines of small, midsize, and large businesses. Here are some key policy initiatives the CWG is well positioned to impact:

  • Strengthening information-sharing initiatives
  • Modernizing cybersecurity regulations
  • Aligning international cybersecurity regimes with the framework
  • Managing cyber supply chain risks

 

Cybersecurity Leadership Council

In 2015, the Chamber announced the formation of its Cyber Leadership Council. The council essentially formalizes and streamlines the CWG by acting as its “kitchen cabinet.” The council is made up of about 30 companies and associations, which was purposely designed to represent a variety of industries and businesses of all sizes. The Cybersecurity Leadership Council is the exclusive voice of the 200-plus members of the Cybersecurity Working Group.
