Connect and Protect at AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium

The evolving threat landscape has forced cyber leaders to evolve and adapt their strategies. Nowhere is this truer than in the U.S. Defense Department and government community that builds, operates and defends networks.

At the AFCEA Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium (June 13 through June 15 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Md.), government and industry cyber leaders will zero in on how to “connect and protect” citizens and government agency amid aggressive and sophisticated cyber threats and an increasing volume of domestic attacks.

Cybersecurity in the Spotlight

The agenda for the three-day event features a lineup of expert speakers from the Defense Information Systems Agency, Joint Force Headquarters-DoD Information Network and Department of Defense Chief Information Office. Along with the speaker sessions, the AFCEA DCOS event offers a mix of panel sessions and training tracks, service cyber components, agencies, industry, academia and military services that will share their insights.

Participants will discuss the requirements and solutions required to ensure networks within the DoD are adaptive, resilient and effective across a range of uses and threats. The event will also dive deeper into leveraging innovative technology and advanced cybersecurity while building new relationships.

Key topics include:


A10 Networks will be part of the conversation.

You can find us at booth 849 where we’ll be detailing how a defense in depth cyber security strategy can fortify networks and applications against today’s modern threats, and how government agencies can protect themselves from threats concealed in encrypted traffic.

A10 Thunder SSLi empowers government agencies to break and inspect encrypted traffic to eliminate the blind spot in their networks without sacrificing performance.

A10 Networking Happy Hour

As part of AFCEA DCOS, A10 is co-hosting a networking happy hour with Norseman Defense Technologies, Puppet and Actifio.

Join us from 4:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, June 14 at the Pratt Street Ale House, 206 W. Pratt St., Baltimore, for an evening of lively discussion about DoD network security and performance requirements.

We look forward to seeing you there and talking more about innovative solutions and strategies to secure government agency networks and protect them against escalating cyber threats.
