White House to Convene 30-country Cybersecurity Meeting

Share post:

The White House has announced plans for a cybersecurity virtual meeting later this month to focus on tackling the issue of cybersecurity.

According to the U.S. President, the meeting will address a wide range of issues related to cybersecurity, including fighting crime, improving law enforcement cooperation, curbing the illegal use of cryptocurrencies, building trust and ensuring better security for supply chains.

“We are bringing the full strength of our capabilities to disrupt malicious cyber activity, including managing both the risks and opportunities of emerging technologies like quantum computing and artificial intelligence,” Biden said.

This cybersecurity meeting is one of the steps the Biden administration is taking to curb and reduce cybercrime, following a similar meeting the U.S. President had with major technology companies such as Google, Apple, and Microsoft earlier in the year aimed at strengthening the country’s cyber resilience and defense.
