ABOUT THE EVENT.
Who Should Attend & Why?
Background: The United States faces growing threats from malicious actors who seek to compromise critical business, National infrastructure, and Defense information residing on various networks. Potential economic losses and damage to National Security are staggering. Every day there are over 10 million cyber attacks worldwide with an estimated annual cost of $100 billion. Millions of Americans have had their identities compromised. Businesses have had IP and financial data taken. Government networks have been targeted. Ransomware recently caused some health care organizations to stop providing services, and individuals continue to be “attacked” with viruses, phishing, and ransomware. As a result, the Department of Defense has mandated as of 31 December 2017 that defense contractors meet certain cyber security requirements to do business with the government. (DFARS 252.204-7012)
To protect our networks and defeat these threats, today more than ever, Industry and the Government rely on Public-Private Cybersecurity Collaboration to share cyber threat information, enhance the overall security of networks, reduce damage to critical programs, and increase cyber situational awareness. Department of Defense has established a Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Program that allows participants to share unclassified and classified cyber threat information in near-real time and respond to adversary activity. Shared information includes mitigation measures and cybersecurity best practices.
This Southeast Region Cyber Security & Technology Symposium will provide commercial and government entities information about operational cyber perspectives, threats, needs, teaming and business opportunities. All businesses with IT & Cyber security capabilities, all businesses engaged in the federal market, government agencies, and R&D entities should attend.
