May 1-2, 2018
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.

Featured Speaker - Alan Paller, President, SANS Technology Institute, Director of Research, SANS Institute
Alan Paller is president of the SANS Technology Institute and director of research for the SANS Institute, responsible for projects ranging from the Internet Storm Center (the Internet’s early warning system, with 500,000 sensors around the world) to the Top Ten Security Menaces of the coming year. He also edits NewsBites, the twice-weekly summary of the most important news stories in security. But he says his most satisfying responsibility is finding people who have solved important security problems and helping SANS’ 85,000 alumni in 60 countries learn about those people and their discoveries. Alan earned degrees in computer science and engineering from Cornell University and MIT. He has written hundreds of articles on computer graphics, EIS, and computer security, and has authored two books, The EIS Book: Information Systems for Top Managers and How to Give the Best Presentation of Your Life. He has testified before the House and Senate, and in 2001, the president named Alan as one of the original members of the National Infrastructure Assurance Council. In 2005, the Federal CIO Council chose him as its annual Azimuth Award winner, recognizing his singular vision and outstanding service to government information technology. He earned his bachelor of science in engineering from Cornell University and a master of engineering from MIT.

Natalio Pincever is currently the Director, Advanced Programs at Palo Alto Networks. In this role, Mr. Pincever works across Federal market customers to identify opportunities to insert Palo Alto Networks products and capabilities into their mission space, as well as to deliver new capabilities to support their mission. His goal is to evolve Palo Alto Networks’ relationship with their customers from that of a product vendor to being a trusted mission partner.
Previously, Mr. Pincever was at McAfee, where he built and ran an organization dedicated to supporting the unique Intelligence needs of McAfee’s largest customers. His team provided mission-focused intelligence products leveraging McAfee’s threat collections as well as their own sources and methods, answering the deeper “who-what-when-where-why-how” needs of their customers. Prior to that position, he was McAfee’s senior Technical Executive for Intel and Advanced Technologies working across the Intelligence Community; he was the Chief Engineer for Cyber at Raytheon’s Intelligence and Information Systems; as well as having served in several positions in the Defense Intelligence Senior Executive Service (DISES) at the US Department of Defense.
Shawn Fitzgerald joined Palo Alto Networks Federal team in April 2014 as a Systems Engineer focused on the US DoD. Shawn has been in the networking industry since 1991, holding individual contributor and management positions in Systems Engineering and Technical Marketing for industry leaders such as FORE Systems, Cisco Systems, and QLogic.
