InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
InfoWarCon 18 brings together a highly elite group of political, military, academic, DIYer, and commercial cyber-leaders and thinkers from around the world. We examine the current, future, and potential hostile use of cyber and related information technologies including how to neutralize the current ones. Since the initial InfoWarCon in 1994 we have hosted the event in multiple venues across the US and Europe. This year InfoWarCon runs November 1-3 with Training on Oct. 30 and 31 at the National Conference Center, Leesburg, VA.
Our Board of Advisors has selected speakers and invited participants based on originality, creativity, demonstrability, controversy, and communications skills in order to provide IWC 18 participants with the most insightful and thought provoking content. IWC has been one of the few places where a Deputy Secretary, a Professor, a college intern, and a member of a think tank are able to sit down and exchange ideas on what happens next.
The last year has been a hot bed of cyber activity that needs to be analyzed and discussed at the international strategic level. Among those, broad topics of particular interest are: Undeclared Cyberwar, Technology, and Policy.
