The Patuxent Partnership announced a Cyber Symposium, "Cyber: What is it? Where are we going?,” with keynote speaker, Rear Adm. Margaret "Peg" DeLuca Klein, Chief of Staff, U.S. Cyber Command, will occur today, Tuesday, March 5, at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center in California, Md.
Klein serves as Chief of Staff, U.S. Cyber Command, where she directs staff in operations and defense of specified Department of Defense information networks. U.S. Cyber Command prepares and conducts military cyberspace operations to enable and ensure freedom of action in cyberspace, and deny that freedom to adversaries.
“The work that needs to be done to ensure America’s cyber security which is critical to our nation, has to be accomplished in cooperation with many different organizations,” said Klein. “We are working together with other government agencies and our partners will be able to make a lasting, effective solution. We are in a unique time in history and need to shape the future of cyber.”
“Cyber security includes a considerable range of technologies, capabilities and services that extend beyond information and network security,” said Bonnie Green, Executive Director, The Patuxent Partnership. “With Maryland as the home of U.S. Cyber Command and numerous federal agencies at Fort Meade working to address the growing threat, it is also important to recognize the cyber work at Pax River. We look forward to Admiral Klein’s remarks.”
The symposium includes panels focusing on important aspects of cyber challenges and opportunities. Registration is fully booked. Walk-in participants cannot be accommodated.
The Patuxent Partnership works with government, industry and academia on initiatives in science and technology, hosts programs of interest to NAVAIR and the broader DoD community, and supports workforce development including education initiatives and professional development.
