InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
The expansion of the global Cyber Domain has enhanced the capabilities and enabled technological advancements of the Federal Government, the DoD, and the American private sector. However, the reliance on the Cyber Domain leaves us vulnerable to attacks perpetrated by hostile state actors, cybercriminals and terrorist groups who exploit weaknesses in our systems to interfere with and degrade defense and commercial networks and critical infrastructure. These cyber intrusions threaten the ability of the United States government and military to operate effectively and will become increasingly important to address as dependence on the Cyber Domain grows.
To effectively maintain cyber superiority, combat adversaries, and freedom of action in the Cyber Domain, the Government has made significant investments in updating its networks and capabilities. Additionally, the signing of a new Presidential Memorandum has provided USCYBERCOM with new cyber authorities that allow for increased offensive cyber operations that will disrupt and deter adversarial activities.
DSI’s 6th Annual Cyber Operations for National Defense Symposium will provide a forum to explore the most recent developments in US defensive and offensive cyber capabilities, changes in policy that allow for greater freedom of action in the cyber domain, and the most pressing cyber threats facing our nation. This year’s Symposium will foster conversation between relevant stakeholders from the community to discuss how to overcome and meet evolving cyber threats and guarantee continued US dominance in cyberspace.
