2021 National Security Forum

Join us October 27, 2021 | 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

National security threats are constantly evolving and changing, and the government must stay a step ahead of those changes. While it’s relatively easy to prepare for known threats, anticipating and preparing for the threats of the future is a different task.  In this National Security Summit, Defense One and Nextgov will convene key leaders from the Department of Defense and intelligence community to discuss the most pressing national security challenges the U.S faces now and will face in the future, and to share insights and expertise as well as practical and creative solutions. Leaders will explore issues relating to counterterrorism strategy, cloud computing, development and acquisition of advanced technologies, as well as equity and inclusion, to inform audiences about emerging threats and how they're responding to them.
