CyberNextDC 2021 has ended
CyberNextDC is one of the leading cybersecurity policy conferences in DC. This year’s event will be hybrid, with limited in-person attendance and remote participation via Zoom. The event will focus on the evolution of ransomware, successful information sharing models, and global policy trends and developments in the cybersecurity ecosystem. Our participants will provide insights into long-standing cybersecurity issues along with practical recommendations for cybersecurity policy on topics such as ransomware, information sharing, public-private collaboration, and equity and inclusion in the cybersecurity workforce. Speakers include high-level government policymakers, Coalition and Alliance member representatives, and foreign government officials. We hope you can join us!
