Link To Event
The amount of global instability has only increased in 2017, interfering in others elections, governing by Tweet, terrorism, cryptocurrencies, and continues breaches of critical infrastructure.
With sources of information becoming suspect, and with the Internet providing endless opportunities to manipulate and promote, what can we do about the pressing concerns of living in and protecting a connected, globalized world?
We are looking for novel ideas, expositions of risk and mitigation, and strategies and suggestions that may shape the years ahead.
We will have three focus areas on this conference, but all topics are welcomed to submit.
- Bots and Propaganda
- Cryptocurrency and its implications
- Undeclared Cyberwar
InfoWarCon 18 brings together a highly elite group of political, military, academic, DIYer, and commercial cyber-leaders and thinkers from around the world. We examine the current, future, and potential hostile use of cyber and related information technologies including how to neutralize the current ones. Since the initial InfoWarCon in 1994 we have hosted the event in multiple venues across the US and Europe. This year InfoWarCon runs November 1-3 with Training on Oct. 30 and 31 at the National Conference Center, Leesburg, VA.
