ABOUT THE EVENT. According to McAfee and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the world lost about $600 billion to cybercrime in 2017. The White House Council of Economic Advisers estimated that cyberattacks cost the U.S between $57 billion and $109 billion in 2016 as a result of 21, 239 public sector cyber incidents and 239 known breaches. During this same period, government agencies reported 30,899 cyber incidents, 16 of which met the threshold of being a major incident.
The exponential growth of the Internet of Things, and now the Internet of BATTLEFIELD Things opens the door for both increased capabilities and vulnerabilities. Leaders must continually evolve to adapt to future innovations and resultant cyber security threats.
To accomplish this, the Department of Defense has established outreach offices and procedures to discover and acquire cutting edge, innovative technologies to address these evolving needs. Many of these procedures are being used across the Federal government.
Target Audience: Military, Government, Commercial, Academe interested in Cyber, IT, IoT, AI, Blockchain, Quantum, Big Data Analytics, embedded systems, sensors, cloud computing, and how to interact with potential government and commercial customers.
Call for Abstracts. One of the panels will consist of commercial, government, and academe participants who have submitted and had their paper chosen for presentation. Winners will be announced, advertised, and given 5-7 minutes to present their innovative technology as part of the panel after lunch on 11 Oct. Submissions instructions:
