AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium: Your Gateway to the Cyber Defense and Intelligence Community

The AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium is your prime opportunity to bring your solutions in front of key decision-makers responsible for securing, operating and defending our nation's networks. As the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency's operational role as a network defender evolves, they will be looking for innovative ideas to help centralize and integrate cyber operations for the DoD and branches of the military. 

Linked by a commitment to cybersecurity, the community of partners, including DISA, U.S. Cyber Command and the command's military service components, will gather at the 2018 Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium, May 15-17, 2018 at the Baltimore Convention Center, in Baltimore, MD.
