On Friday, February 13, Co-chair of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney’s Cybersecurity and Data Protection Group Matthew H. Meade served as a panelist at the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection. The event in Pittsburgh –one of 18 that happened simultaneously across the country – was fed a live stream speech by President Obama. U.S. Attorney David Hickton also spoke about detailed plans for stronger information sharing between government agencies and the private sector.

After the event, Meade told the Tribune-Review that information-sharing must go both ways. “If you have the government sharing information with you, you can at least gear up and be prepared to respond. They will have threat intelligence about something coming down the pike, and you can be ready in advance.”
