Cybersecurity experts to head event during the ongoing Black Hat hacker conference this week.
Plagued by cybersecurity problems throughout its presidential campaign, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign will now be hosting a cybersecurity-themed charity event at Las Vegas this week, during the ongoing Black Hat cybersecurity conference, reports FedScoop.
Heading the fundraiser panel will be Black Hat founder Jeff Moss, Harvard University professor Michael Sulmeyer, who heads Clinton’s cyber policy working group, and Cambridge Global Advisors chief Jake Braun, also strategic advisor to Department of Homeland Security and Pentagon on cybersecurity issues.
Going by their experience in digital security, it is likely that Sulmeyer and Braun could find themselves with information protection responsibilities in the next administration, says FedScoop.
The fundraiser comes close on the heels of a Clinton campaign breach in which the analytics data program it uses was compromised during the DNC hack.
