Second Annual Cybersecurity in National Security Summit

September 28th, 2022 9:00am-12:00pm EST   Virtual, ON24

The threat of cyber attacks is on the rise, and hackers are getting more sophisticated. As a growing list of government agencies, commercial companies and military branches prioritize modernization and become more reliant on advanced technologies, more and more critical information, data, processes and systems are online and subject to cyber attacks.

Today, cybersecurity is one of the most important priorities for the federal government. Advancements in zero trust, Multi Factor Authentication, cloud security and more are opening up new opportunities for organizations to better secure their assets and the nation.

Join GovCon Wire for its Second Annual Cybersecurity in National Security Summit to hear from leaders across government and industry as they discuss cyber threat intelligence, the future of cybersecurity, protecting critical infrastructure and more.
