Engagement Theaters

The AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium will feature five separate engagement theater spaces on the exhibit hall floor. Concurrent theater sessions will take place on Thursday and Friday, June 14-15, 2017. The theaters are smaller venues seating just 100-150 participants in order to allow greater interaction and the presentation of technical and niche topics that may not be the right fit for the plenary stage. Sessions pre-qualified for continuing education credit are annotated with an asterisk. A preliminary list of topics follows. Session descriptions and speaker information is posted on the symposium agenda.
