As cyber threats continue to grow, small and medium businesses (SMBs) face a unique set of challenges in improving their defenses. The event will open with a fireside chat featuring Rep. Langevin, who will share his perspective on how best to promote cyber risk mitigation measures for SMBs. The chat will be followed by a moderated panel of government and industry leaders who will explore how to advance cybersecurity solutions and resiliency in critical infrastructure SMBs. The panelists will discuss USTelecom’s 2021 Cybersecurity Survey of Small and Medium-Sized Businesses, which examines the cybersecurity risks, readiness, and realities of SMBs that own, operate, or support U.S. critical infrastructure.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
