Thought Leader Melissa Hathaway to Speak at Potomac Officers Club’s Digital Currency & National Security Forum

Melissa Hathaway, a thought leader in the fields of digital risk management and cybersecurity, has been added to the list of featured speakers for an upcoming virtual event, hosted by Executive Mosaic’s Potomac Officers Club, that will explore the national security aspect of cryptocurrency.

She will serve on a panel during POC’s “Digital Currency and National Security” forum to lend her insights to a discussion of how blockchain data can support intelligence-gathering work.

As president of Hathaway Global Strategies, she helps clients from Fortune 500 companies to understand digital risks to their organizational objectives as well as advises them on cybersecurity, industry practices, government policies and legislative matters that may affect business operations.

Hathaway previously served under the Obama and Bush administrations where she ran the Cyberspace Policy Review and the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative, respectively. Her awards for leadership work include the National Intelligence Reform Medal and the National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation.

She co-wrote the “Integrating Cyber Capacity into the Digital Development Agenda” report, funded by the World Bank’s Digital Development Partnership and commissioned by the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise Foundation, which recommends several pathways to bridge cyber capacity building and digital development communities.

Sign up for the Forum to hear from Hathaway and other distinguished government and industry leaders as they explore the future of cryptocurrency.

National Cyber Director Chris Inglis will headline the event to overview the nation’s plan for regulation as the electronic form of money seeks wider relevance in the global financial system.

Marshall Billingslea, formerly assistant secretary for terrorist financing at the Treasury Department and currently a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, will serve as the second keynote speaker.

Several other leaders from the government and business sectors will participate in the “Integrating Zero Trust Architecture into Digital Currency & National Security” and “Cryptocurrency & National Security Implications: Leveraging Blockchain Data to Enrich Intelligence Gathering” panels.

The event will have a fireside chat session with Juan Zarate, global co-managing partner and chief strategy officer at K2 Integrity; and Michael Saylor, CEO of software company MicroStrategy and an advocate for the “Bitcoin Standard.”
