It’s Back And More Important than Ever!
After a 4-year hiatus, what was once a must-attend event for so many IT leaders is returning to Montgomery this August. The Air Force Information Technology & Cyberpower Conference is bringing together Air Force IT experts, prominent IT academics, and America’s best cybersecurity vendors for 3 days of exhibits, speakers, education, and discussion about the ways we can better defend America from cyber-attacks, advanced persistent threats, and proactively lead in this in this increasingly digital world.
Foreign governments, hackers, terrorists, decentralized threats, and others have never presented a greater risk to the well being of the United States and the cybersecurity of corporations and private individuals. Everything from financial records and personally identifiable information to vital infrastructure and strategic information critical to the safety and security of the U.S. faces a litany of ever-evolving threats.
In 2015, the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) was hit with one of the worst data breaches in history, exposing not only personal data but also the security clearance information of nearly 22 million people. Underscoring this was a time lapse of nearly a year from the time of the initial breach until its detection. It is at this juncture that the AFITC reemerges to again bring together the best and brightest in the public and private sectors.
THIS YEAR’S THEME: America: Living Free, Secure, And Productive In A Cyber World
From former and current personnel who shape the conversation about information technology/cyber security, to the private industry leaders developing new and innovative solutions to the problems of today and tomorrow, no other event gives you such high-level access to both ends of this spectrum. If you have cyber or cutting edge IT solutions to offer, you have to be at AFITC.
