The Association of the United States Army Institute of Land Warfare presents “Army Networks and Cyber Security in Force 2025” to be held June 12, 2014 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. This focused one-day event will include participation from the U.S. Cyber Command, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and the U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command.

This Hot Topic seminar will feature speakers and panel presentations that will address issues to include: how Army networks and cyber security factor into the Army emerging Force 2025 concept, an overview of the Army’s role in Information Networks, conducting full spectrum military cyberspace operations, protecting the command and control systems, and synchronizing war-fighting effects to defend the information security environment. The seminar will provide an open forum for attendees to interact and participate in discussions with leaders from the Army, the Department of Defense, Industry, and Academia.

Scope & Objective

A key objective of the symposium is to provide a forum that facilitates open discussion among attendees, speakers and panelists on network security as the Army moves forward to ensure that the warfighter remains supported on today’s and tomorrow’s physical, as well as virtual battlefield, especially in the post-Afghanistan period. Army personnel play an indispensable role in defending and protecting our information networks and ensuring the United States and our allies maintain freedom of action in cyberspace while denying it from our advisories.
