About TechNet Indo-Pacific
Considered by many a natural region that stretches from the African east coast to the U.S. west coast, the Indo-Pacific area has undergone a strategic shift that requires reliable connectivity between the Indian and Pacific oceans. Today’s reality is that the historic and contemporary nations in South Asia, specifically India, play a major role in shaping present and future discourses.
Keying off this shift, AFCEA International and AFCEA Hawaii have re-named their signature event in the region TechNet Indo-Pacific. By far the largest event focusing on regional defense issues, the conference will reflect the expanded broader Asia view with participation from throughout the area, discussing defense policies and challenges and their relevance to both industry and government through this new lens.

Check out the Social Wall: Use #AFCEATechNet and share pictures to "see" colleagues. While we aren't together, we can still "show ourselves" to facilitate a sense of community. We're so glad you're here!.
Prepare to be Aware
Conferences present opportunities for America's adversaries to target U.S. government employees, academia, defense industry and other personnel to collect our critical information. Be a hard target! Use good OPSEC practices to protect yourself and your organization's mission.
- Be aware of your surroundings when discussing sensitive unclassified critical information during the conference and after hours, in common/public areas (e.g. social gatherings, networking mixers, etc.).
- Be suspicious of strangers. Even though they sound like they belong at the conference, don't assume they are there for the same purpose as you.
- Use caution when sharing information with someone you don't know. Ask others to confirm a person's identity before sharing critical information about your organization's past, ongoing or future operations/activities/events. Protect your personal information, such as your room number and daily schedule. Don't give out your business cards freely, particularly when outside the United States. Remember, phishing is still the #1 adversary threat vector into your personal and government computers/devices/networks.
- If you use a laptop or other portable electronic device (personal or government-owned), use it cautiously. Disable the Bluetooth and WLAN/Wi-Fi connections when not in use, and if you use this type of connectivity, understand that you may expose personal and work-related critical information to an adversary. Be especially cautious when using unencrypted/unsecure WLAN/Wi-Fi hotspots.
BE SMART! BE SAFE! PRACTICE GOOD OPSEC!
