The 12th Annual DoD Cyber Crime Conference, sponsored by the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3), welcomes submission of abstracts for consideration to present a briefing, workshop, or panel discussion. In each of the last four years, we have had more than 220 speakers in 20+ concurrent track sessions. The deadline for abstract submissions is July 6, 2012.
Conferences that bring together government, academia, and industry are increasingly important as cyber criminals band together to access, gain control of, and manipulate the systems that store vital data. The conference provides an opportunity for cyber professionals to network and receive essential training in an open forum that promotes collaboration and innovation.
January’s conference will focus on developing the cyber workforce by setting the standard for degree certifications, validating credentials, and drawing in our talented youth through academic clubs and challenges.
Topics will focus on the areas of:
Cyber Crime Investigations
Cyber Crime Law
The Defense Industrial Base
Research and Development
By Kathleen Harger, Chief Advocate Adaptive Initiatives, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Registration closes soon for business leaders to attend the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) second Industry Summit taking place in Arlington, Virginia, on September 29 and 30.
DARPA, the Defense agency tasked with maintaining technological surprise, invites chief executive-level business leaders to engage in an open and informal dialogue regarding the most pressing national security challenges facing the United States.
DARPA leadership will be in attendance to guide dialogue around senior leadership topics.
DARPA seeks to improve industry interaction and create new business partnerships. Through a roundtable discussion format, DARPA hopes to:
- Build new collegial relationships at the senior leadership level with both nontraditional and traditional companies of various sizes and various industries – relationships we hope will be lasting and productive
- Have substantive dialogue on our most difficult national security challenges
- Frame policy issues from the technical community’s perspective and actively contribute to novel solutions
Registration closes on August 27. The successful January 2010 Industry Summit was filled to capacity. January participants are not permitted to register, but may join the waiting list, which will be activated if any of the 112 planned attendee slots are not filled when registration is closed. Rooms have been blocked at Kimpton’s Hotel Palomar in Arlington, Virginia.

On today’s 2PM ET webcast, Mr. R. Paul Ryan, administrator of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), will discuss DoD Techipedia, a scientific and technical wiki designed to increase collaboration among DoD scientists, engineers, program managers, and operational warfighters.
Defense professionals and researchers in science and technology (S&T) have to rely on increasing number of resources for monitoring current trends and advancements in their various fields of knowledge. They need to be aware of how these technologies are being used and repurposed to fill capability gaps. DoD’s S&T wiki, DoDTechipedia, (and its suite of services) is effectively addressing the needs of our most important client – the warfighter. A secondary goal of DoDTechipedia is to provide those in defense and S&T with a means to communicate, collaborate, and market their expertise.
