The Second Annual Cyber Security Summit provides a venue for our nation’s most seasoned cyber security practitioners to come together to work issues of common concern.

Join us for this year’s summit, which will be held November 15, 2012 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC. Matt Devost and Bob Gourley will moderate the event and facilitate dialogue designed to generate three conference papers to advance the state of practice in the federal cyber security domain.
