National Cybersecurity Strategies: What are Developing Nations to do?

Developing nations with limited human and technical resources are faced with populations that demand access to new technology and a global economic space that allows access to economic development through technology. But the technology also brings significant risk.

What can these countries do at a policy level to better position themselves for success?

This webinar will assess the current developments at an international level and highlight emerging best practices in cybersecurity policy development.

Presenter: Dr. Kevin Newmeyer

Currently the Senior Operations Director for the CREATEtm project of the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program, Dr. Newmeyer has successfully held a variety of positions in the military, academia, international civil service, and the private sector. His research focuses on international policy issues in cybersecurity. Along with his Ph.D. in Public Policy from Walden University, Dr. Newmeyer’s educational career is highlighted by his selection as an Olmsted Scholar which enabled him to earn his MA in International Relations from the Instituto Universitario Ortega y Gasset in Madrid, Spain.  He holds additional degrees from Escuela Diplomática of Spain (Diplomado de Estudios Internacionales), George Mason University (MBA), and the US Naval Academy (BS). Dr. Newmeyer is also a fellow at the National Cybersecurity Institute.
