National Security Law Journal Holds First Symposium

The law school's National Security Law Journal held its inaugural symposium on April 2 at the Washington, D.C., law offices of Arnold & Porter, with General (Ret.) Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency, as the event's headliner.

The symposium topic was Defending Against Cyber-Intrusions from State-Sponsored and Civilian Hackers. A crowd of approximately 130 attendees were present for the event.

Joining Hayden were Suzanne Spaulding, Deputy Under Secretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and Ronald Lee, a partner at Arnold & Porter. Dr. Mark Troutman, Associate Director of the Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security at George Mason University School of Law, served as moderator for the symposium.
