AFITC 2021

Great Power Competition: Accelerating Change in the Digital Domain

As stated in the 2018 National Defense Strategy, it is now undeniable that the homeland is no longer a sanctuary. America is a target, whether from terrorists seeking to attack our citizens, malicious cyber activity against personal, commercial, or government infrastructure, or political and information subversion. Cyber-attacks offer adversaries low-cost and deniable opportunities to seriously damage or disrupt critical infrastructure, cripple American businesses, weaken our Federal networks, and attack the tools and devices that Americans use every day to communicate and conduct business.

We require the modernization of key capabilities to include investing in cyber defense, resilience, and the continued integration of cyber capabilities. Private-public dialogue is integral to building a new paradigm in which digital platforms are secure, and the nation is defended in a domain. Building bridges between government and the private sector is essential for dominance.

Join us at this year’s AFITC to hear senior leaders from industry focusing on specific examples and lessons learned to enable cyber Airmen to improve policy, operations and acquisitions. Similarly, government leader lectures will focus on vision and expectations of the AF Cyber workforce, to educate Airmen and other Service members that industry is ahead of the military in defensive cyberspace solutions, and exhort more innovative energy to solve cyber challenges.
