Hosted annually by the DIA Chief Information Officer, the DoDIIS Worldwide Conference features a distinguished line-up of speakers and an extensive selection of breakout sessions allowing attendees to gain insight and interact with experts in smaller settings. This year’s conference presents an exciting and unique opportunity to directly engage with senior leaders from the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, and industry about the IT complexities and challenges impacting the mission user.
One of those challenges, and the emphasis of this year’s conference, is cybersecurity. As DIA’s Director, Lieutenant General Vincent R. Stewart has noted, “traditional cybersecurity is passive and reactive. Together, with our government and private sector partners, we must develop new and better ways to respond to threats, not just monitor them. We must maneuver against our adversaries, prepare contingencies, share information, and protect America’s critical infrastructure. We must dominate the cyber domain.”
Year after year, DIA’s DoDIIS Worldwide Conference provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to collaborate, network and forge relationships with like-minded government and industry leaders. Rarely are so many noteworthy authorities and specialists gathered under one roof to showcase and discuss creative solutions. Building off the past success of the conferences, the 2017 event will provide even greater access to Government, civilian, military, and industry partners, and is poised to be the best year yet!
