2018 5th Annual Cybersecurity Summit | Potomac Officers Club


Join the Potomac Officers Club for the Fifth Annual Cybersecurity Summit to hear from public and private sector leaders on how federal agencies can improve their respective data security measures.

In 2017, the number of cyber attacks nearly doubled compared to the previous year. Both federal agencies and private businesses were targeted in approximately 160k individual cyber incidents according to the Online Trust Alliance. The explosion in malicious cyber activity is pushing both the public and private sectors to place an increased emphasis in defensive and offensive cyber training, incorporating innovative technologies into federal cybersecurity practices, and implementing the Cybersecurity Framework outlined by NIST.
