Mike Rogers’s Speech Topics

  • Cybersecurity Is Everyone’s Security

    Cybersecurity is a concept that is thrown around without much consideration of what it means to individuals or organizations. The reality is that cybersecurity is everyone’s security. Today, nearly everyone banks online, orders products from Amazon and other online vendors, and drives cars that rely on GPS and sensors to navigate the roads.

    But most don’t appreciate the unique risks that exist today and are going to emerge in the future. Autonomous vehicles, implantable medical devices, the Internet of Things, and other technological advancements will change the way we live our lives. As one of the leading experts on the nexus between cybersecurity and policy, Mike Rogers shares his incomparable perspective on how our world is changing and how technology, cybersecurity, and the digital economy must come together to build a prosperous and secure future.

  • A Conversation with Mike Rogers

    With over 30 years’ experience in the public sector, Mike Rogers brings unique insights into how things work—and don’t work—in Washington. From his time in the U.S. Army and the FBI, to starting as a freshman representative through his chairmanship of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, Rogers has seen it all, interacting with world leaders, intelligence officials, military officers, CEOs, presidents, and everyone in between. Today, he is at the forefront of technological innovation and cybersecurity, working with boards and C-suite executives to craft policies and investments to ensure the protection of company assets and profitability in turbulent markets.

    From these experiences, and with his trademark candor and wit, he can offer a wealth of insight and perspectives customized to your audiences on issues including:

    •           Leading diverse teams through complex crises

    •           The current geopolitical situation and its impact at home

    •           Tomorrow’s national security challenges

    •           Governing in a contentious political environment

    •           Today’s populist tone and the feelings of Middle America

    •           Technology and its impact at home and abroad

    •           Leadership in public service

  • Global Security, Local Problems

    “Think global, act local” is a common mantra that is equally applicable to national security. How so? Mike Rogers discusses the rapid changes of technology, the emergence of new (and old) national security problems, and how the nexus of technology and security will change the way we look at and interact with the world. From Russian information operations in Europe and abroad to China’s expansionist foreign policy, from ISIS and al-Qaida to conflict in cyberspace and outer space, and economic development and innovation, challenges that seem far away have an impact here at home. Rogers will cover the issues from the lighter side to the sobering reality we now face, and chart a way forward.
