Interact with Highly Regarded Cyber Intelligence Professionals at AFCEA’s Global Intelligence Forum 30-31 July 2013


AFCEA continues to help facilitate dialog on issues of importance to the nation regarding technology and national security. An event I believe you will find of high interest is their July 30-31 2013 Global Intelligence Forum. I have pasted information below from their site including a list of speakers.

AFCEA events almost always are booked solid and this will be no exception. Please register ASAP.

From their website:

“Increasingly, state and non-state actors are gaining

and using cyber expertise.

…These capabilities put all sectors of our country at risk,

from government and private networks to critical infrastructures.”

-The Honorable James Clapper, Jr.

Director of National Intelligence

Worldwide Threat Assessment to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (March 12, 2013)

Welcome to the 2013 AFCEA Global Intelligence Forum (USA)!

For over 30 years, the government and industry members of the AFCEA Intelligence Committee have sponsored highly regarded classified symposia and conferences for intelligence professionals. Now – in partnership with AFCEA’s Cyber Committee – the Intelligence Committee is bringing that same expertise to an unclassified forum as part of its commitment to supporting the public-private partnership the nation needs to ensure secure operations in cyberspace.

On July 30-31, 2013, in the National Press Club in the heart of Washington, D.C. right near the White House, the AFCEA Global Intelligence Forum will focus specifically on the role of intelligence in the cyber domain.

During this day and a half, unclassified conference, leaders from across the government, military, and industry will explore the role that the Intelligence Community can play in helping to ensure free and secure cyberspace operations – from setting requirements, to collecting and analyzing data, to delivering insights and recommendations. In the end, the discourse will look at where industry can partner with the government to provide cyber situational awareness and indications and warning.

As you review the menu to the left, you will see a tab marked “Ask a Speaker a Question.” Using this tab you can help frame the conference agenda by submitting questions you would like specific speakers or sessions to address during the conference. On the “Program” page you can also click on a speaker’s name and submit a question for him or her.

We hope you will join us on July 30-31, 2013 for the AFCEA Global Intelligence Forum.

Best regards,
