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.

Networking Tips for the Virtual Conference
Opt in: Maximize engagement by checking both boxes in your profile to “opt in” to make your profile visible and enable the private chat feature. Your contact information will still be private. Clicking “Share Business Card” allows you to exchange contact information for follow-up.
Update your Profile: Once you're logged in, click on "Edit Profile" at the top, left of the screen. You'll be able to add credentials, job title, organization name, contact details, and most importantly - a picture - to put a face to your name!
Chat Away: Whether you are in a session or a booth, you can engage in the public discussion in the window on the right hand side of the screen. Say hello, introduce yourself, and chat about content. To have a private discussion, simply click on any attendee’s blue chat bubble to launch a private chat!
Connect: Visit the "Attendee Search" tab to see what colleagues of yours may be participating. Use the “Search” box to filter search results to identify potential new connections. Be sure to opt in so you can let your peers know you are participating!
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!.
