About TechNet Cyber
The 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.

Ask Questions: While participating in live sessions, ask questions! Speakers have been invited to participate as their schedules permit to engage in the public discussion window to engage in the conversation and answer your questions.
Keep the Conversation Going: Share your virtual business card to facilitate follow-up outside the platform and to keep conversations going! We'll keep the virtual platform open for approximately six months after the virtual conference closes.
Check out the Social Wall: Use #AFCEACyber 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!
