This document conveys proceedings from the ICF Cybersecurity Research and Development Symposium 2016, the theme of which was “Cybersecurity Research and Development: Recommendations for the 45th President of the United States.” The symposium brought together experts from industry, government, and academia to share the important developments in cybersecurity research and development (R&D). The event took place October 27 at ICF’s headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia.
The symposium comprised three panels:
- Cybersecurity and Privacy
- The Future of Cyber Operations and Technologies
- Beyond the Government: Mobilizing Industry and Academia
Technical presentations were organized in three tracks:
- Cybersecurity in the Service of National Security
- Securing the Emerging National Smart Infrastructure
- Cybersecurity and the Social Network
Summaries of the keynote speeches are provided along with recaps of the panel discussions and breakout sessions. Following the symposium, ICF prepared summary recommendations to the 45th president of the United States concerning cybersecurity R&D. Those recommendations are presented in the full document and represent the opinions of ICF, not necessarily those of individual CyberSci 2016 panelists and presenters. They reflect whole-of-nation cybersecurity R&D concerns rather than specific R&D efforts or cybersecurity technologies.
