The Growing Importance of Cyber Emphasized at Fourth Annual Cyber Panel

The chapter held the Fourth Annual C4ISR Cyber Panel in March at the Water's Edge Events Center in Belcamp, Maryland. This highly anticipated event featured an interactive discussion with renowned members of the newly formed Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR), including Panel Chair Portia Crowe, chief of cyber engineering, Program Executive Office Command Control Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T); Col. Fred Dixon, USA, chief of the strategy and policy division, Headquarters Department of the Army G-3/5/7; Col. Gary Brock, USA, chief of the future Defensive Cyberspace Operations Branch; Bill Taylor, chief, Cyber Offensive Operations Division, U.S. Army Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate; and Scott Christensen, information assurance manager, Cyber Security Information Assurance, Space and Terrestrial Directorate, C5ISR Center. Each panelist offered a brief presentation on a variety of topics, all of which emphasized the growing importance of cyber within the Army's new programs of record. These presentations were followed by a question-and-answer session that allowed members of the AFCEA community to engage with panelists and better understand the issues facing their respective agencies. By facilitating discussions between government and industry, this event enables members to work hand in hand with APG to present innovative technology that can take its cyber operations to the next level. The chapter thanks all of the honored panelists who attended, as well as SIGNAL Magazine for covering the event.
