Cyber Security and Government Interoperability

March 8, 2016 - March 12, 2016

Cyber security has become one of the most essential components of protection for economic and national security interests worldwide. Both the United States and Europe share a common necessity of protecting these systems in order to maintain the resilience and reliability of critical infrastructure and key resources. In order to protect and ensure sufficient cyber security, information sharing on best practices and strategies is essential.

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs will be hosting visitors from Poland for the project “Cyber Security and Government Interoperability.” In their visit to Cleveland, visitors will gain an understanding of what cyber threats mean to different entities within the government, private sector and academia, learn about what laws are being passed regarding cyber security and how they are enforced, and experience how businesses in the private sector are affected by cyber security.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields.  Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program. 

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
