The 10 Nov 2015 FedCyber Summit and Threat Expo: Agenda Update

fedcyber (1)The 5th Annual FedCyber Summit and Threat Expo will be held 10 Nov 2015 in Tysons Corner VA.

With this post we provide a quick update on how the event is looking this year. We conclude with encouragement for you to sign up right away, we are 30 days away from the event and seats will go fast.

More on the event:

Every year this summit brings together thought leaders who know the cyber mission in a venue designed to enhance our collective understanding of the threat, build on existing strategies to mitigate challenges, and leverage the nation's greatest technologies to enhance our defense. We have crafted an action-oriented event that will help the community shape models for the next decade of national cyber defense.

Our agenda this year has a special focus on addressing advanced threat issues. Speakers include an array of highly regarded professionals from government and the cybersecurity community. We will hear from the only member of Congress who has been a cybersecurity analyst, Representative Will Hurd. We will also hear from the Deputy Director of NSA, Rick Ledgett. Winn Schwartau, the man who coined the term Information Warfare and mentor to a generation of cyber warriors will lead a panel of five highly regarded cybersecurity strategists in a discussion of nightmare scenarios. Champions of enterprise technology like Dr. Peter Fonash of DHS and Dr. Ray Letteer of the USMC will discuss technologies and the very interesting topic of technological threats. We will hear from the former Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Terry Roberts and the leader who stood up the first DoD CERT and later established the cyber programs at DHS, Bobbie Stempfley. And throughout the event we will be building in opportunity for attendees to interact with each other, which has always proven to be one of the highlights of the FedCyber experience.

As always, registration is free for full-time government employees and active duty military. And thanks to some great sponsors, ticket prices are incredibly low for those in industry and academia. We also have a limited number of free passes for students who would benefit from attending the event. If you are or know of any student who would like to attend please ask them to get in touch.
