On March 24, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar on President Obama’s National Cybersecurity Action Plan of 2016.
As part of the President’s FY-17 Budget, President Obama seeks to establish improving the nation’s cybersecurity posture as one of the legacies of his administration. This webinar examined the details of the proposal and assessed the possibility of enacting significant improvements in U.S. cybersecurity.
The webinar was presented by Dr. Kevin Newmeyer.
