A 2018 World Economic Forum report warned that the three top global risks to society, by likelihood, are:
No US cybersecurity division deals with this tricky trifecta daily, except for the exceptional team at NOAA. Covering from sea to space, NOAA provides minute-to-minute data about the conditions of our oceans, our major waterways and our atmosphere. And to do it without any interruptions, they rely heavily on a secure and resilient global network infrastructure.
So that NOAA's Cybersecurity Division is prepared for every worst-case digital scenario, their Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) hosts an annual NOAA IT Security Conference. This year's event - held Monday, June 24th through Friday, June 28th - includes briefings from various NOAA components and industry leaders. On Wednesday, June 26th (the main Security Day), there will be a cloud migration panel discussion, an impressive speaker lineup and a vendor meet and greet. Exhibitors may attend the sessions on June 26th only.
Last year's popular event boasted 300 attendees, the vast majority of whom met with vendors during the multiple conference breaks (including the dedicated time for industry meet and greet). Exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up early, as this event sold out in 2018!
