Alexandria, VA, Dec. 5, 2017 – (ISC)2 – the world’s largest non-profit membership association of certified cybersecurity professionals – will host its annual (ISC)² Secure Summit DC (formerly CyberSecureGov) training event May 7-8, 2018, at the MGM National Harbor in the Washington, D.C. area. More than 1,000 cybersecurity practitioners from federal government agencies, private enterprises, government contractors and academic institutions are expected to participate in two days of expert-led sessions on a wide array of cybersecurity topics.  

“When we look at our most critical cybersecurity challenges, like defending critical infrastructure and protecting the integrity and confidence in our digital economy, it’s clear that we need to foster more collaboration and coordination between the public and private sectors,” said (ISC)² Managing Director, North America, Brian Correia. “That’s why we expanded the scope of our D.C.-area event to address challenges and issues facing cybersecurity professionals in all industries. Secure Summit DC will be a platform to share solutions and best practices, and help foster the broader cooperation we need to better secure our data.”

(ISC)² Secure Summit DC will bring together some of the best minds in cybersecurity for two days of insightful discussions, workshops and best-practice sharing that will better equip attending cybersecurity practitioners to tackle today’s threats, strengthen their organization’s security posture and advance their careers.
