About TechNet Cyber

WEST imageThe cyberspace battlefield has changed. No longer an arena where adversaries launch a single distributed denial of service attack, lob a virus or infiltrate a network, it is now a state of persistent barrages and simultaneous campaigns. Attacks against high-value targets still occur, but they are accompanied by a torrent of continuous assaults on political, economic and security interests.

Both offense and defense in this landscape requires a united front where no frontlines exist. A powerful cyber force built on a strong bond between government agencies and allied nations will be the only way to combat adversaries bent on not only destroying one country but also dominating all of cyberspace.

TechNet Cyber 2020 will be a forum for military, industry and academia to discuss and plan how to achieve persistent engagement, presence and innovation. It is the opportunity to devise a new strategy to build resilience and defend networks.

AFCEA International’s TechNet Cyber is one of the pillars of the association’s TechNet brand and encompasses the Defense Department as well as civilian agencies across a broad spectrum of mission sets.

  How can I receive a pre and post-show attendee list?

TechNet Cyber and SPARGO, Inc. (Event Management) encourages you to be aware of organizations who claim to have access to the TechNet Cyber Attendee List, as they may try to sell this list to you. Please note neither the conference host, AFCEA International, nor SPARGO distributes an attendee list or any attendee information and DOES NOT offer list rental services.
