Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, October 14th 2020, or created by us.
What a year this has been for us all. If we’ve seen one thing over the past few months, it is this: threats to national security haven’t been abated by the spread of coronavirus.
Keeping the Cipher Brief community carefully connected is more important this year than ever before.
That’s why we are bringing you the Cipher Brief Threat Conference from September 13-15 in Sea Island, GA. We know this pandemic is affecting everyone in unique ways, so we are offering different ways to participate.
First, you’ll see some changes to the 2020 agenda, including an all-virtual attendee option as well as an in-person option. Changes for in-person attendees will include smaller gatherings and outdoor sessions.
Organizers will also be also adding virtual networking sessions for all attendees which will pair Cipher Brief experts with private sector leaders for 45-minute networking opportunities. There will be no structured remarks during these networking events to encourage as much engagement among attendees as possible.
The dinner this year honors Mr. Charlie Allen with our very first Cipher Brief Lifetime Achievement Award. It will be happening virtually on Sunday, September 13, from 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm.
For those who choose to participate in-person:
– There will be a credential check at The Cloister front gate, as the resort is located on a private island closed to public traffic.
– There will be a mandatory mask requirement for in-person events.
– Social distancing guidelines will be in place during all sessions.
– The resort will conduct a temperature screening of all attendees before allowing entrance into indoor conference spaces.
– If any attendee exhibits a fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, they will not be allowed into the conference spaces and will be asked to participate virtually from their room.
Keeping this community connected is critically important, so for the first time, we will provide a private briefing book and a series of virtual sessions to all registered attendees after the conference.
