(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, July 11 -- Technology Policy Institute issued the following news release: No government agency or private corporation is immune today from cyber-attack, network penetration and loss of sensitive data. The panel "Targeting a Secure Future" at this year's TPI Aspen Forum ( will examine whether the current approach to cyber-security is making any headway against this epidemic. Panelists, including key federal policymakers and private sector experts, will explore the government's responsibility to protect the private sector as well as companies' obligations (and abilities) to protect their own networks.
