President Barack Obama will meet with various CEOs Wednesday afternoon to discuss cybersecurity during a week in which administration officials have been putting an intense spotlight on the issue.
Obama will sit down with corporate leaders in the Situation Room of the White House to share ideas for how the government and private businesses can best work together to improve the country’s defense against cyberattacks. Such cooperation is the focus of Obama’s recent executive order on cybersecurity, which instructed federal agencies to notify private businesses of potential threats in a timely and declassified fashion.
Wednesday’s meeting will likely focus on economic cybersecurity — that is, the prevention of hackers targeting American firms to steal corporate secrets and intellectual property.
