Team Defence Australia is seeking expressions of interest from Australian export-capable defence companies to participate in TechNet Cyber in Baltimore from 1-5 June 2020.
TechNet Cyber 2020 is a forum for the US military, industry and academia to discuss and plan how to achieve persistent engagement, presence and innovation. It provides a prime opportunity to bring your solutions in front of key decision-makers responsible for securing, operating and defending US networks.
This event offers Australian export-capable businesses the opportunity to showcase their innovative products and services, make international contacts and potentially identify new supply chain relationships.
Attendees include members of the Defense Information Systems Agency, Joint Force Headquarters-US Department of Defense Information Network and US Department of Defense Chief Information Office as well as a mix of service cyber components, agencies, industry, academia and the military services.
In 2019, 1,250 active military and government personnel and 1,125 industry professionals were in attendance from 16 countries.
The cyberspace battlefield has changed. No longer an arena where adversaries launch a single distributed denial of service attack, lob a virus or infiltrate a network, it is now a state of persistent barrages and simultaneous campaigns.
Attacks against high-value targets still occur, but they are accompanied by a torrent of continuous assaults on political, economic and security interests.
Both offense and defense in this landscape requires a united front where no front lines exist. A powerful cyber force built on a strong bond between government agencies and allied nations will be the only way to combat adversaries bent on not only destroying one country but also dominating all of cyberspace.
TechNet Cyber 2020 will be a forum for military, industry and academia to discuss and plan how to achieve persistent engagement, presence and innovation. It is the opportunity to devise a new strategy to build resilience and defend networks.
AFCEA International’s TechNet Cyber is one of the pillars of the association’s TechNet brand and encompasses the US Defense Department as well as civilian agencies across a broad spectrum of mission sets.
