At the ArcSight Protect 09 conference, keynote speaker Melissa Hathaway, former acting senior director for cyberspace at the White House, pointed to her belief that the federal government is moving in the right direction for securing cyberspace. However, she highlighted that currently the nation is not where it should be in terms of protecting cyberspace, and more needs to be done.

Hathaway warned cyber incidents involving corporate data are on the rise and encouraged increased cooperation among organizations in the private sector. The conference included a number of government security professionals and a strong contingent from the private sector. Hathaway also called for increased education and research in the cybersecurity field in an effort to “close the innovation gap.”
