Past event: DoD Information Warfare Symposium 2023

Delivering Enhanced Cyber & EW Effects for the All-Domain Fight

The 5th Annual Information Warfare Symposium is designed as an educational, "Town Hall" style forum, where thought leaders and key policymakers across the DoD, Military services, acquisition authorities, industry, & academia will convene for actionable discussions on facilitating the deployment of electronic warfare (EW) and cyber capabilities to both, strengthen the modern information space and bolster the Joint Force's decision advantage when combating adversary attempts to conduct information warfare.

Topics To Be Covered At The 2023 Symposium:

  • Accelerating DoD electronic warfare (EW) capabilities to dominate in the digital battlespace
  • Defending & advancing national interests by directing, synchronizing, & coordinating cyberspace planning & operations
  • Enabling mission success across the Naval enterprise by advancing information operations
  • Converging capabilities to generate information warfare outcomes for the Air Force
  • Preserving the Army's information advantage to achieve & sustain decision dominance
  • Guiding efforts to support & enable DoD mission success in cybrespace

Why You Should Attend This Symposium:

The 2023 Symposium will convene leaders and key policymakers across the DoD, Military services, acquisition authorities, industry, & academia will convene for actionable discussions on how the DoD & Military services are advancing their information warfare capabilities to enable decision dominance for the Warfighter to succeed in the modern battlespace. The 5th Annual Information Warfare Symposium will offer attendees in-depth discussions on the implementation of technologies and capabilities to pursue a competitive advantage in both offensive and defensive information operations in support of the Joint Force.

Amid a dynamic global competitive environment, adversaries are highly adaptive and threat environments are increasingly complex. The ability to develop and deliver cyberspace and EW capabilities to equip the Warfighter for the future all-domain fight against resilient, advanced adversaries is critical to mission success. This year's Summit will explore efforts to synchronize cyberspace planning & operations, develop superior EMS capabilities, effectively control the information space, & field emerging technologies and capabilities to enable an information advantage in support of DoD objectives. The event will also feature a panel of Senior level experts that will discuss the role of information warfare amid rising threats from advanced adversaries. Attendees at the 5th Annual Information Warfare Symposium will have the unique opportunity to examine the current and future technologies and strategies designed toward enabling information superiority for the Joint Force to ensure mission success on the modern battlefield.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposium's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in EW & Cyber from key 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.
