Two weeks ago we pre-announced the FedCyber.com Government-Industry Computer Security Summit.
On 28 September 2011 a small number of cyber innovators, computer security practitioners and information assurance experts will gather in an attempt to map out new paths for positive change in the cyber security dynamic.This summit seeks dramatically enhance the state of security and functionality of federal systems as well as in the overall ecosystem of IT we all partake in., IT security, infrastructure protection, mission resiliency… We’ve all witnessed the increasing dialogue around these concepts over the past several years. Despite having been subjected to “wake-up calls” for the past fifteen years, we seem to be consistently setting the bar at the same height from year to year.
Our goal is to develop the constructs needed to raise the bar higher and continuously improve.The FedCyberSummit will look at solutions relating to cyber security with a focus on emerging threats, concepts and solutions. We’re lining up a spectacular plenary-only track of speakers and interactive panels from the public and private sector for this one day event.We will be opening registration soon.
Since then, planning has continued. Conference co-chairs Matt Devost of FusionX and Bob Gourley of CTOvision.com have continued to interact with a growing circle of thought leaders to help craft an action-oriented agenda and to ensure the participation of several key community stakeholders. We are still in an early registration period where we are seeking involvement by cyber professionals with a bias towards action in the community.
