AFCEA Symposium and Exposition


"The Challenges of Security in a Network-Enabled Environment"


A symposium to examine the approaches that nations and industry are taking to balance the opportunities of the speed and accessibility of network–enabled capabilities whilst managing the security implications that such technologies present.


Istanbul, sometimes described as ‘the crossroads of Europe and Asia’ is a vast, heaving metropolis with a history that stretches back for more than 1,500 years. You can see the remains of many ancient civilizations and their culture in harmony with Turkish culture. This city has been chosen as joint European Capital of Culture in 2010.

What better time to hold an event that already has the support of the Ministry of National Defence (MoND) Undersecretariat for Defence Industries. Mr. Lutfi Varoglu, Head of International Cooperation Department and Mr. Mete Arslan, Head of CEIS Department, who are working for this organization, are actively encouraging Turkish IT companies to participate. In addition, the Turkish Defence Manufacturers Association (SaSaD) is supporting the event and encouraging Turkish Defence Industry companies to participate.

All AFCEA events have always been supported by the Turkish General Staff Communications, Electronics and Information Systems Department (TGS J-6) and the MoND Vice-Undersecretariat for Technology and Coordination.
