Michael Balboni, Of Counsel in the Firm’s Corporate & Commercial and Health Services Practice Groups, has been selected to the Board of Directors of the Center for Cyber & Homeland Security (CCHS) at the George Washington University. The members of the Board provide high-level guidance and support to the leadership team at the Center, and help to sustain and grow its policy and research activities.
The Board is chaired by J. Richard Knop, the Founder and Co-Manager of FedCap Partners and a member of the University’s Board of Trustees. The membership of the board includes former senior government officials, private sector executives, and other national leaders with expertise in cybersecurity, counterterrorism and homeland security.
The CCHS was established in January 2015 to integrate the activities of two existing policy centers within the George Washington University: the Homeland Security Policy Institute and the GW Cypersecurity Initiative.
Building on the longstanding track record of these two entities, CCHS convenes leading experts and policy practitioners at dozens of senior-level events (both on and off the record) each year. Past speakers at events include senior U.S. Government officials, members of Congress, private sector executives, and foreign leaders. CCHS also regularly publishes policy-relevant research and analysis and provides expert testimony to Congress on critical issues and challenges related to cybersecurity, counterterrisum and homeland security.
