Endgame Inc. CEO Nathaniel Fick in Conversation with Museum CEO John Hollar

In 2012, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned that the US was at risk of a cyber Pearl Harbor. He pointed to rapid technological advancement in aggressor nations like China, Russia, and Iran and cited security holes in American transportation, financial, and government systems.

Panettas statements came one year or more prior to state-sponsored attacks on the US. Office of Personnel Management, the State Department, Sony, the New York Times, Google, and many others. In the five years after Panettas dire comments, it has become clear cyber threats are no longer just the work of teenagers in parents basements or even organized crime groups.

How is the US government using technology to protect its citizensand prosecute hackers? How have policy initiatives in this area changed as hacks have intensified? How is the government working with the private sector to prevent attacks? And what does national cybersecurity policy look like under President Donald Trump?

Endgame Inc. CEO Nathaniel Fick joins us to consider these questions and more. Endgame is a next-generation endpoint security software company that automates the hunt for the most advanced cyber threats. He is also an operating partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, where he works with management teams to build durable companies. Before joining Endgame, Nate was CEO of the Center for a New American Security, a national security research organization. He served as a Marine Corps infantry and reconnaissance officer, including combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. His book about that experience, One Bullet Away, was a New York Times bestseller, a Washington Post "Best Book of the Year," and one of the Military Times "Best Military Books of the Decade."
