Why You Should Attend this Symposium

As the Cyber Domain expands, the US Government and private sector must enhance technology and expand operations to effectively operate and defend against threats in cyberspace. Rapid advancements by malicious actors increasingly interfere, deter, and degrade our defense and commercial networks. Cyber intrusions also threaten the ability of US defense and security personnel to operate effectively.

This symposium will focus on policy, operations, and technology designed to defend critical networks and allow for the freedom of operation in the Cyber Domain. The event will also discuss critical infrastructure protection and the role of DHS and the commercial sector.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in human and technical intelligence analysis from military cyber commanders to key policy-makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
