Cyber Committee

The Cyber Committee provides an active focal point within AFCEA for encouraging the exchange of ideas and for coordination of AFCEA’s cyber-related activities.  

The AFCEA Cyber Committee is a volunteer group of public and private sector information technology professionals. The committee oversees AFCEA's outreach and helps ensure open lines of communication between the government and industry.

  • Promotes AFCEA membership and support within the cyber community. 
  • Supports SIGNAL Media by encouraging and contributing ideas for cyber-related articles and interviews.
