Cybersecurity Innovation at NIST... and Beyond!

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

In collaboration with CyberScoop, join us on October 22 at 11 a.m. at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), a part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), for discussions with leading industry experts, informative presentations and panels, campfire sessions, and networking opportunities. As part of CyberScoop's DC CyberWeek activities (in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month), participants will learn about NIST’s cybersecurity portfolio, see live demos, hear from our partners, and enjoy lunch alongside subject matter experts from NIST.

You’ll hear about NIST’s work in cybersecurity focus areas such as: data integrity, IoT, identity and access management, privacy, small business, AI and machine learning, cryptography, and health IT. You will also have an opportunity to inspire discussion, learn, shape the future direction of NIST publications, and share your feedback directly with cybersecurity influencers. Entrepreneurs, students, and cybersecurity professionals, in particular, are encouraged to attend!

Parking is FREE next to our building.
