On 28 September 2011, FedCyber.com will facilitate a one-day Government-Industry Cyber Security Summit to be held at the Newseum in Washington DC.

This event is free for government cybersecurity practitioners.

The FedCyber.com Government-Industry Summit will bring 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 in depth. This summit is being co-chaired by cyber practitioners Matt Devost and Bob Gourley, who are working with the community to craft an action-oriented event. This summit will help the community shape models for the next decade of national cyber defense.

We have confirmed speakers like the Honorable James Miller, Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy and Ms. Dawn Meyerriecks, Assistant Director of National Intelligence for Acquisition, Technology & Facilities, Scott Culp, Principal Cybersecurity Architect, and Nitin Pradhan, CIO of Department of Transportation. We have also confirmed the attendance of some of the nation’s most capable cyber defenders.

We are attracting a no-nonsense cadre of professionals always on the lookout for virtuous solutions and if that describes you we would like you at this event.
