CyberSci Symposium 2017: The Battle for Cyberspace

ICF is hosting the 5th annual CyberSci Symposium on September 28, 2017. This premier science and technology event allows for U.S. Government, academia and industry professionals to discuss emerging RD challenges, cybersecurity trends, emerging technologies, best practices and strategies around the toughest issues facing cybersecurity.

The Symposium will focus on urgent threats impacting the whole of nation, commercial and network infrastructures and the security of cloud networks and providers.

Technical Tracks:

    • Cybersecurity, Vulnerability, and Threat Assessment - Presentations on this topic will encompass a broad range of information security topics. Some of these topics include, but are not limited to, penetration testing, security and risk management, security engineering, identity and access management, testing, security operations, and security in software development. This theme also includes the tools and techniques to baseline military platforms and critical infrastructures. The development of presentations for this topic will demonstrate the need of security professionals to explore the full scope of assessments including the supply chain (hardware manufactures, equipment delivery, software authors, and software delivery) and assessment of operations (weapons and pods, sensors, maintenance, mission planning, and tactical communications).
    • Innovation for Information Services - Experts believe 50 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020. Mobile technologies like smartphones, mobile computing platforms, autonomous systems, biometrics, and the explosion of interconnected space systems will change the world as we know it. Crowd sourcing will become the norm as the value of the knowledge of the whole is valued over the knowledge of the individual. We will see a growing need for security, advanced sensors, and systems which have inherent security mechanisms as communications between these devices becomes faster and more complex. This complexity will result in the realized growth of novel advancements in technologies like the block chain, autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, bio-inspired computation, evolvable systems, smart sensors, and technologies that are outside the bounds of current thought. This session will highlight groundbreaking ideas and technologies to help propel the state of the art in cybersecurity into the next decade.
    • Combating the Whole of Nation Cybersecurity Threat - Countries are mounting whole-of-nation approaches to the exercise of power that include strengthening their cybersecurity defenses, while breaching that of others. They exploit sensitive data, combine it with false information, and endeavor to manipulate political, social, economic, and military outcomes. Their approach to cybersecurity may be integrated with their use of political, economic, and other military tools. What can we do to better understand these threats? How do we combat them? Should we adopt these tactics? If so, how?
    • Commercial Infrastructure and the New Cyber Battlefield - Critical infrastructure and consumer systems are threatened increasingly by weapons-grade cyber exploits and attacks. These networks were not built to withstand threats of this sort. How can they be defended in a world in which adversaries do not distinguish between traditional national security targets and other targets? How can enterprises that are not protected by national security-grad defenses secure themselves from national security threats?
    • World of Cyber/Internet of Things - More complex than ever, networks continue to advance as new devices are added and new topologies emerge. Increasingly, infrastructures will be supported by cloud providers, and cloud workload will be moved, or “orchestrated” as network needs and economics expand. How can we characterize these networks well enough to detect anomalous behavior? How will the security of such networks be managed? Who will manage infrastructure security, cloud security, or customer security in an increasingly interconnected environment?
This year's speakers include former Director of the White House Situation Room, Larry Pfeiffer, Chief Dr. Alexander Kott, Whitney Shepardson Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Robert Knake and more to come. The Symposium is co-chaired by our academic partner, the George Washington University’s Center for Cyber and Homeland Security. A leader in cybersecurity research and development, ICF provides rich support to the cyber R&D community, and is a leader in building cybersecurity programs to protect critical infrastructures. CyberSci proceedings from 2016 are available for download. Please direct any questions to [email protected].
