InfowarCon was first held in 1994, and ran from that time to 2010 across the United States and Europe. It brought together military, private sector and law enforcement under the meme: “we are all in this together.”
Over the last few years, in conversation with colleagues around the world, it was made clear that InfowarCon must be revived and returned to its original cutting edge nature for four compelling reasons: a severe lag between the West and its adversaries in cyber warfare, weaponization of advanced technologies backed by economic interest, the fact that new technologies are almost always used against us in the end, and the consistent need to fully understand modes of attack in order to properly defend against them. InfowarCon 2014 was the first step to getting things restarted.
InfowarCon has always sought to merge the military, law enforcement / first responders, intelligence and private sectors into a single forum where cyberterrorism, infowar and homeland defense can be openly addressed in a hands-on, interesting manner.
