Integrated Cyber Spring 2018 - May 1-2

Integrated Cyber is the premier cyber event bringing together the Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense (IACD), Automated Indicator Sharing (AIS), and cyber information-sharing communities.

This two-day event provides a forum for collaboration and technical exchange to support the adoption of integrated, automated cyber defenses across the cyber ecosystem. Expanded from the IACD Community Day, Integrated Cyber showcases government, industry, critical infrastructure, operations, and research perspectives.

Integrated Cyber is hosted by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), in collaboration with the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Our goal is to dramatically change the timeline and effectiveness of cyber defense via integration, automation, and information sharing.
