Upcoming Cybersecurity Events
Spring/Summer Events coming soon!
Past Events Sponsored by the Cyber Security Division
- DHS-DOD Cyber Security SBIR Workshop – July 25-26, 2012, Washington, DC – The 2012 joint DHS Science & Technology Directorate and DOD Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASD) (R&E) Cyber Security Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Workshop focuses on maximizing technology transition opportunities for SBIR funded research. The workshop featured short presentations by small businesses describing their products and technologies, prime contractors identifying their programs and needs and government stakeholders describing their mission and requirements. Breakout sessions were held for one on-one discussions on partnering, tech transition, and business opportunities.
- IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum (ITSEF) – Held annually since its start in 2007 – This Public Private Partnership initiative is designed to bridge the gap between IT security solution providers and the commercial and government end users of our Nation’s IT and Telecommunications critical infrastructures and national security command and control operating systems.
- USSS Global Cybersecurity Conference – August 4-6, 2009. The Secret Service hosted its first Global Cyber Security Conference in Washington, D.C. More than 400 attendees heard from both domestic and international experts on the front lines of cyber security and cyber investigations. Secretary Napolitano delivered the keynote address for the inaugural conference, jointly hosted by the Secret Service and the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, as well as the CyberScience Laboratory. Designed to allow participants to network, as well as share information and best practices in combating cybercrime, approximately 50 speakers engaged in presentations and panel discussions over the course of the three-day event.
- Cybersecurity Applications and Technology Conference for Homeland Security (CATCH) – March 3-4, 2009, Walter E. Washington Convention Center (Washington, DC). The security of the global information infrastructure is becoming more important every day. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate invests in projects offering the potential for revolutionary changes in technologies that promote homeland security and accelerate the prototyping and deployment of technologies that reduce homeland vulnerabilities. CATCH is a technical forum for DHS researchers to present their results in several topic areas of cyber security. The goal of CATCH is information exchange between researchers and information security practitioners across government and the private sector. Click here to view presentations from the conference.
- DHS S&T System Integrator Forum – February 21, 2008 – The goal of the DHS S&T System Integrator Forum is to introduce high-quality, top-performing research companies to large integrators of technology who serve the federal government and private industry. Each of the presenting technology developers have completed cyber security technology development projects funded under DHS Broad Agency Announcements (BAA) or Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) programs. They were selected for participation in the SI Forum based upon the maturity of their technology solution, relevance to government needs, the apparent commercial viability of their approach, and their business leadership. These technology solutions represent cutting-edge innovations with the potential to improve the security of the nation’s cyber-infrastructure, while also reducing the costs required to protect cyber assets from attacks.
- The DHS Science and Technology Directorate and the Center organized the Cyber Security R&D Forum on September 20, 2005 at SRI International in Menlo Park, CA.
