Cyber Beacon is the flagship event of the National Defense University's College of Information and Cyberspace (NDU CIC). The conference brings together experts and leaders from across the national security community, private sector, and academia to discuss the most pressing problems concerning cyberspace, information, and national security. The 2019 conference theme is "preparing for disruption" and there are six sessions; cyber related terrorism, information and disinformation, innovation problem solving, quantum, artificial intelligence, and 5G.
Cyber Beacon 2019 will be held on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 September 2019 at the NDU campus on Fort McNair in Washington, DC. Attendance is by invitation only, there is no cost to attend the event for government and military personnel, and space is limited. While the conference is unclassified, there are optional classified breakout sessions during lunch.
The NDU Foundation supports this conference with catering, reception, expert panelists, and industry information tables. Seating is not assigned, so attendees are encouraged to sit at separate tables from those in their home organizations in order to meet a wider array of fellow professionals in this growing community.
