Attendance is by invitation only and is limited to professionals working in the national security space. 

Our 2021 Agenda was focused on navigating to a new post-pandemic future and examining ways the public and private sectors can work efficiently to address national security threats emanating from China, Russia, cyber and space. We also focused on the application and impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the national security environment via tabletop exercises, guest speakers and networking sessions.

"It's not about who's on stage.
It's about who's in the room."


"I think this is one of the best conferences I’ve ever been to. Real leaders exchange real ideas on how we can be safer in this cyber world. When we can come together, we can finally deliver on that promise of public-private partnership."
