The Industry Innovation Showcase provides the opportunity to demonstrate cutting-edge solutions to government representatives and potential industry partners. Located on the exhibit floor, the showcase provides a platform for the broad exposure to government, military and industry attendees. The AFCEA Technology Committee and AFCEA senior staff evaluated more than 65 proposals to select the seven submissions that widely represented our overall call for abstract topics below:

  • Reducing the costs of cyber defense
  • Providing next-generation enterprise cyber solutions
  • Building a culture of technological innovation
  • Recruiting, training and retaining the cyber workforce

Solutions will be presented in the Cyber Innovation Pavilion on Wednesday, June 14. Presenters will have 20 minutes to brief and 10 minutes for Q&A. Robert K. Ackerman, editor-in-chief, SIGNAL Media, will facilitate the presentations.
