East-West Institute, EWI, Microsoft, Second World Cybersecurity Summit, Trustworthy Computing
The East-West Institute is hosting the Second World Cybersecurity Summit in London June 1 and 2.
The EastWest Institute (EWI) was founded in 1980 to bridge technical divides across the Iron Curtain. Now, it lives on as a global think-and-do tank that devises innovative solutions to pressing security concerns and mobilizes networks of individuals, institutions and nations to implement these solutions.
A Microsoft spokesperson told me that Microsoft’s Scott Charney, corporate vice president of Trustworthy Computing, will deliver a keynote address focused on building trust in the global technology supply chain. “In his address, Charney will urge industry and governments to create a consistent, transparent and stable approach for cyber supply chain management in an effort to preserve the benefits of open and free global trade.”
In addition, Microsoft will partner with global cyber security policy leaders and security strategists from governments and leading global technology companies in a breakthrough group session entitled “Collective Action to Improve Global Internet Health.” The group will examine the current state of the Internet and collaborate on ways to improve consumer device health.
