Leaders from across DOD, industry and academia will discuss challenges, near-term requirements and emergent solutions.


AFCEA will host its first Cyber Education, Research and Training Symposium January 17-18 in Augusta, Georgia. The much-anticipated event, also known as CERTS, will connect military and agency stakeholders with solution providers from academia, business and research centers.

CERTS will feature keynote speakers, panels and breakout sessions promoting discussion between operators and supporting professionals. Featured speakers include Col. Andrew O. Hall, USA, director, Army Cyber Institute; Michael Hudson, deputy director, J-7, U.S. Cyber Command; and Lt. Gen. Paul Nakasone, USA, commanding general, Army Cyber Command.

During his keynote cyberthreat update, Col. Hall will address the need for extensive and consistent training to deny those that desire to degrade or steal material that could be used against government, industry or academic organizations. Schools, universities and government training organizations must address emerging sophisticated threats and challenges from adversaries, whether they are “lone wolf” or organized state-sponsored threats.

Symposium sessions will focus on information that supports the cyber educators, trainers and work force from the classroom to the workplace. They will concentrate on topics that are crucial both in practice and on missions, and are being designed to cover a range of subjects from curriculum through certification, and from tools to techniques.

The inaugural event is limited to 350 attendees to facilitate community building and promote networking so register today.
