Cyber Defense and Network Security Summit
Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta made headlines around the world recently when he warned America was at risk of a “Cyber Pearl Harbor”. A stark comparison at first – Panetta’s words soon turned heads when devastating cyber attacks on American banks and newspapers exposed the vulnerabilities of U.S. computer networks. It came as no surprise when he announced the Department of Defense would pump $3billion annually into cyber security.
The threat against American computer systems is more prevalent than ever. The number of cyber attacks on American infrastructure has increased almost twentyfold in the last two years, while our preparedness for a large-scale attack on a scale from 1 to 10, “is around a 3”, according to CYBERCOM Commander General Keith Alexander.
IDGA’s Cyber Defense and Network Security Summit takes place just as the White House puts the finishing touches on the 2013 cybersecurity executive order and lays out the strategies and initiatives for the upcoming decade. Speakers from CYBERCOM, the Air Force, and Marine Corps will all share the latest cyber challenges and opportunities, while speakers from the Department of Homeland Security, National Security Agency and NATO will present on strategies for cyber intelligence sharing and real-time response to threats.
U.S. national cyber capabilities are in a state of transition and Cyber Defense and Network Security 2013 will set the stage for decision-makers to express requirements and listen to industry solution providers. Come join us and establish yourself as a key player in this burgeoning field!
