                      The Internet as we know it today is a prime example of the power of partnerships. DARPA may have given birth to the technology, but it was collaboration with other government agencies, industry and academia that nurtured its growth. Today’s cyber domain demands the same dynamic, dedicated partnerships to ensure innovation continues. Panelists will discuss how partnerships between and among government and the business sector can move innovation forward at the speed of industry.

                        Wrangling the valuable resources various agencies, industry and academia contribute to bringing about mission success is not a simple task, particularly in the world of cyber. It requires information sharing, situational awareness, innovation and collaboration. To help better understand how DoD components can leverage collaboration to overcome the complex cyber challenges these organizations face, the panel will discuss the tactics they employ and tools they require to achieve success in the ever-changing domain.
