In the words of the organizers: The National Cyber Summit is the nation’s most innovative cyber security-technology event, offering unique educational, collaborative and workforce development opportunities for industry visionaries and rising leaders. There are two key focuses for this InfoSec event in 2020: accessibility and connectivity.
Held in Huntsville, Alabama, one of the nation’s largest technological hubs, the Summit attracts both government and commercial participants. Long known as the home to Department of Defense organizations and civilian departments and agencies including DHS, NIST, NASA, TVA, NSA and DOE, Huntsville also has many other industries represented. Companies are diverse and include healthcare, automotive and energy industries, academia, genetic research, and high technology.
“The cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges our nation faces. Cybersecurity affects nearly every aspect of our lives – critical infrastructure, banking, healthcare, transportation, and more. Our nation’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on how well we manage cybersecurity,” said National Cyber Summit Chair Rodney Robertson.
The event is hosted by the North Alabama Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (NAC-ISSA), Cyber Huntsville Corporation (CHC), Auburn University Research, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
“There is no better place to address cybersecurity than in Huntsville, Alabama,” said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “This city is at the pinnacle of technology, and the National Cyber Summit brings together the best and brightest from our government, industry, and academic technical community.”
