Dallas TX, April 8, 2021 – The second of four virtual events comprising the International Cyber, Land, Air, Sea and Space (C.L.A.S.S.) Symposium, America’s Future Series will host its Cybersecurity Summit on April 13th, 2021. In a partnership with NSIN- National Security Innovation Network as the title sponsor and the National Cybersecurity Center and Cyber Nation Central the summit hosts leaders from around the globe to give their visions for the future of American cybersecurity, with a focus on cybersecurity in space.
Executive leaders from both the private and public sectors will be giving their thoughts in keynote addresses as well as interactive fireside chats and roundtables. Chairs of the event are Lt Gen Harry Raduege (ret.), CEO of the National Cybersecurity Center and Andrzej Cetnarski, CEO of Cyber Nation Central. Attending visionaries include Admiral Bobby Inman, Retired US Navy Admiral and Director of NSA and CIA will be giving the keynote speech. Other attending speakers include Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, commander of the United States Space Command; Lauren Knausenberger, Chief Information Officer for the United States Air Force; Morgan Plummer, NSIN Managing Director; Lt Gen Robert Shea, CEO of AFCEA; BGen Jay Matos USSPACECOM; Brig Gen Chad Raduege, Air Combat Command; Brig Gen Paul Fredenburg III; Nand Mulchandani, JAIC; David Shoresh, Deputy head of Israeli National Cyber Directorate; Apoorv Saxena, JP Morgan Chase MD & Global Head of AI; Shelli Brunwick, COO of the Space Foundation and others .
With an estimated 35 Billion devices connected to the internet as of 2020 and predicted to grow to 83 billion by 2024 according to Juniper Research, the world of cybersecurity will become even more complex. In 2017, Internet security provider McAfee estimated that the world’s economy loses $600 billion each year to cybercrime. Organized criminal gangs are not the only threat for cybersecurity either, state actors such as Russia, China and North Korea are major threats that both America and private enterprises face in cyberspace. Cybersecurity in space will become a major focus as well, with private ventures such as SpaceX’s starlink focusing on bringing satellite internet to underserved locations and populations.
Over the course of the summit, the speakers will illustrate their vision for the future of cybersecurity through individual keynotes as well as fireside chats and roundtable discussions. Topics will cover a range of topics, including:
● Cyber in space
● The Cybersecurity Industry
Alongside these enlightening conversations, the Summit will also be a venue for networking in the national security industry.
Registration for the event is ongoing and admission will allow entrance to all four of the C.L.A.S.S. Symposium’s events. Registration can be found at America’s Future Series website.
