On May 28, 2014, the Center for Public Policy Innovation (CPPI) hosted a bipartisan Congressional tour of two leading cybersecurity companies in Northern Virginia – FireEye and Symantec. Congressmen Ted Deutch (D-FL-21); Blake Farenthold (R-TX-27); Tom Marino (R-PA-10); and Jared Polis (D-CO-2) (pictured left) had a chance to meet with top industry cyber experts to better understand vulnerabilities and methods of deterrence. Education is a critical element to forming consensus around cyber policy, and CPPI is committed to fostering the necessary dialogue between industry and government officials.
