Many of the sessions will address the central theme of “Adaptability and Resilience in the Cyber Threat Environment,” and will explore how to strengthen mission assurance against emerging threats and the role of information warfare in disrupting mission. Keynote presentations will be delivered by:

In our increasingly interconnected, digital world, we rely on networks to protect our homes and personal information, power our daily lives, and secure critical infrastructure,” said Randy James, senior vice president and enterprise cyber and resilience division lead at ICF. “To safeguard against emerging threats, leaders must think critically on how best to reinforce and defend physical, virtual and human capital networks to foster long-term resilience. Events like CyberSci are critical in supporting more collaboration across the public and private sectors to address these issues.”
