By Morgan Chalfant, TheHill.com, 10/23/2017

“National Cybersecurity Awareness month will enter its final stage this week as October comes to a close (that was fast!). There are a slew of cyber-focused events planned for this week, including Mozilla’s Cyber(in)security policy summit scheduled for Tuesday, which includes remarks by Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Christopher Krebs, a top cybersecurity and infrastructure protection official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Girl Scouts and Palo Alto Networks are also holding a panel discussion on encouraging youngsters to pursue careers in cybersecurity. And Palo Alto Networks is hosting its first-ever Federal Ignite conference, with keynotes from Tom Bossert, President Trump’s adviser on homeland security and counterterrorism, and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), who chairs a House subcommittee focused on Homeland Security’s cybersecurity efforts.”
