Federal agencies are facing ever more sophisticated adversaries and threats that place our privacy, our economy, and our Nation at risk.

These cyber threats are diverse and include the prevalence of malicious actors who operate globally at will; the growth of risks from the Internet of Things, and increasingly complex networks, all elevating the security and resilience of cyberspace to a critical homeland security imperative. Exacerbating these challenges is a shortfall in cybersecurity and IT talent that effects not only the Federal government, but the private sector as well.

Cybersecurity is a dynamic and crosscutting field that is ever changing and increasingly challenging to address.

This in-depth, half-day session will gather an all-star line-up of chief information officers, chief information security officers, and other thought leaders from government and industry who will explore growing threats as well as innovative approaches to attract and retain the best cyber talent.

The 5th Annual Cybersecurity Summit is a place for important discussions about the challenges with cyber-security and is also a significant benefit both for the AFFIRM scholarship program, which helps students focused on IT skills and is the largest support for USCC's summer camp program, which focuses on cybersecurity.
