New advancements in technology continue to integrate more of our private data and information together across multiple devises and access points. With this increase in accessibility comes greater risks of hacker attacks and breaches. Cyber security and the tools associated with it are on the front lines in protecting our information.

In the wake of major security breaches, including OPM, Sony, and Target, cyber security has taken center stage in talks of national security and defense. As the United States continues to rely on technology for government and military operations, cyber security is needed more than ever before.

Over the course of the conference, our expert panelists will discuss the issues surrounding cyber security and challenges we will face moving forward.

The conference will be held Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at ASP’s conference facilities in Washington, D.C.
