SIGNAL Innovation Showcase: Engaging USCYBERCOM
Thursday, May 16, 2019: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
0800 - 0810: Welcome
0810 - 0850: USCYBERCOM Overview and Technical Outreach
Descriiption: As the nation’s cyber warriors, US Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) operates daily in cyberspace against capable adversaries, some of whom are now near-peer competitors in this domain. We have learned we must stop attacks before they penetrate our cyber defenses or impair our military forces; and through persistent, integrated operations, we can influence adversary behavior and introduce uncertainty into their calculations. Our forces must be agile, our partnerships operational, and our operations continuous. Policies, doctrine, and processes should keep pace with the speed of events in cyberspace to maintain decisive advantage. Superior strategic effects depend on the alignment of operations, capabilities, and processes, and the seamless integration of intelligence with operations. Now we must apply this experience by scaling to the magnitude of the threat, removing constraints on our speed and agility, and maneuvering to counter adversaries and enhance our national security.
This session will provide an overview USCYBERCOM’s updated mission and the primary objectives for the agency. We will also cover industry/academia/USG interaction and how the development of partnerships will be a primary objective to develop enhanced operational capabilities.
0900 - 0950: Panel: Introducing DreamPort - US Cyber Command
Desciption: DreamPort is a USCYBERCOM Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) with Maryland Innovation and Security Institute (a MD Non-profit) that provides innovative collaborative solutions to problem sets by attracting and engaging non-traditional contractors, industry, academia and government mission partners. DreamPort provides a mechanism for collaboration that enables and bolsters the creation and sharing of insights to solve unique problems and deliver tools to USCYBERCOM and its partners to address evolving cyberspace threats and opportunities. The PIA allows freedom of maneuver and, through rapid development cycles, creates tools and methods in support of mission requirements. These responsibilities emphasize mission and operational outcomes consistent with Unified Combatant Command Status providing enhanced readiness, capability, scalability and capacity for action.
SubTopic: Forecasted Technical Requirements of US Cyber Command
This session will focus on upcoming technical requirements for mission success - what is needed, what may not yet exist - access tools, polymorphic tools, neural networks, automated courses of action, ways that the industry side of the equation can help support the work now and in the future. This session will provide a forecast for technology requirements and upcoming
SubTopic: Contracting with US Cyber Command
USCC was granted acquisition authority by the US Congress in October 2016. This session will provide an overview of the acquisition and contracting methodologies to be used by USCC for the purchase of products, services and knowhow required to support the updated mission.
