Abstract

On Friday, February 10, 2012, the Silicon Flatirons Center at the University of Colorado Law School convened leaders from government, industry, and academia to discuss the cybersecurity challenges to United States critical infrastructure. After discussing the current market incentive structure, participants considered governance solutions to improving security. Echoing the diverse views on the national stage, the participants disagreed on many issues. They did, however, agree that the threat is real and substantial. Although some industries voluntarily adopt protective measures, several security professionals present during the discussion provided numerous examples of ones that have not.
