The 2002 Networked Economy Summit, to be held June 9 to 11 at the Hyatt Regency Reston and hosted by the School of Law’s Tech Center, will feature former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani as its keynote speaker, in addition to a number of technology and security experts from industry and government.

The summit, with the theme “Meeting Security Challenges with Technology,” will highlight critical issues we are facing in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, which gave all Americans a different outlook on security, says Bradford Brown, chairman of the Tech Center.

Giuliani will draw on his recent experiences in calming, consoling, and reassuring the American public to speak on leadership in times of crisis. Other confirmed speakers include Richard Clarke, special advisor to the president for cyberspace security, on the government’s role in cyber security; Timothy Muris, chairman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, on the role of the FTC in protecting consumers; John Nolan, deputy postmaster general, U.S. Postal Service, on securing mail deliveries; and Al Berkeley, vice chairman of the Nasdaq Stock Market, on technology as an enabler in meeting security challenges.

This summit is the third in a series of five annual forums hosted by the Tech Center with the objective of fostering business relationships, promoting the global use of information technology, and creating an open environment for discussing policy issues. The summit is cochaired by Congressman Tom Davis and AOL Time Warner Digital Services Development Group Chairman and CEO Barry Schuler. For more information, visit the summit web site.
