Welcome Remarks

  • Kathleen Murphy, Editor, Federal Times

New Faces: Cyber Command Operations

Newly appointed leads at Army, Navy and Air Force CYBERCOM on why each branch needs a cyber command, how they support troops in the field and what we mean by modern “cyber offense.” Panel will also delve into how these new cyber recruits are changing the face of the services.

Tip-of-the-Spear: Cyber Warfare Tactics

Cyber and warfare experts – including leaders from CYBERCOM branches, military academia, NSA and former NSA/DoD intel officers– on how cyber is and can be used as a prelude to kinetic conflict.


The CXO Cyber Challenge

Most CIOs are trained to deliver IT solutions; few have an education in cybersecurity. Yet when a major breach happens they often shoulder the blame. Panel of CIOs/CISOs will discuss how IT managers can stay ahead on cybersecurity; whether CISOs should report to CIOs or take full responsibility as part of the c-suite; and whether business trumps security.
  • Rafael DiazChief Information Security Officer, Department of Housing and Urban Development - CONFIRMED

Offense as the Best Defense: Lessons From White Hat Hackers

In cyber, as in other things, good offense can be the best defense. Proactive cybersecurity methods are often the best defense. White hat hackers, pen test experts and insider threat hunters explain the best options for proactive defense.
  • Linus BarloonDirector, Cybersecurity, Senate Sergeant at Arms - CONFIRMED
  • Lisa Wiswell, Digital Security Lead, Defense Digital Service, Department of Defense - CONFIRMED

Partnering to Protect Private Sector

Representatives from Homeland Security’s Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) and DoD’s Cyber Crime Center (DC3)  programs that leverage government resources to help the private sector deter and rebuff cyberattacks  will discuss the government’s role in protecting the private sector; how federal contractors, the defense industrial base and other companies can work with agencies to increase the nation’s cybersecurity posture overall; and what the government needs from industry.

Security on the Move

The rise of technology  smaller, smarter devices and cloud storage, in particular  have created a mobile workforce like no one ever imagined. But this mobility causes major security concerns, from users logging on to insecure networks to unapproved apps leaking sensitive data. Mobility experts from the DoD and civilian agencies discuss the many traps and pitfalls brought on by a mobile workforce and the technical solutions  from mobile device management to derived credentials  they’re using to ensure their device and network integrity.
