The cyberspace battlefield has changed. It is no longer an arena where attackers launch a single distributed denial-of-service attack, lob a virus or infiltrate a network, it is now a state of persistent barrages and simultaneous campaigns. Attacks against high-value targets still occur, but they are accompanied by a torrent of continuous assaults on political, economic and security interests.
Reflecting this altered, enlarged and pan-organizational battlespace, the Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium has been renamed to AFCEA TechNet Cyber, forming one of the pillars of the TechNet brand and encompassing both DoD as well as civilian agencies across a broad spectrum of mission sets.
Both defense and offense in this landscape require a united front where no frontlines exist. A powerful cyber force built on a strong bond between government agencies and allied nations will be the only way to combat adversaries bent on not only destroying one country but also dominating all of cyberspace. Partnerships with industry fortify that foundation by providing innovation, expertise and novel thinking.
TechNet Cyber 2019 will be the staging area for military, industry, and academia to plan and discuss how to achieve persistent engagement, persistent presence, and persistent innovation. It is the opportunity to devise a new strategy to build resilience and defend networks. This will be a chance to bring your solutions in front of key decision-makers responsible for securing, operating and defending our nation’s networks.
