In Partnership with the State of Michigan’s MEDC!

Based on the subject matter and feedback we received from attendees at our inaugural ‘16 Cybersecurity: Defense Sector Summit, NDIA Michigan realizes it is critical to continue the dialog between government, industry, and academia to foster solutions to our platform cybersecurity challenges.

Summit 2016 was focused on “Be the Conversation”! Summit 2017 will focus on…

Shape the defense sector’s strategy for platform cybersecurity. Be the Solutions!!

Key topics that will be addressed:

  • What are the synergies between Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine platform cybersecurity initiatives
  • Who and what is driving acquisition reform to ensure agility and speed. How are changes being implemented
  • What can we learn from connected car and autonomous initiatives in the automotive industry
  • What are the supply chain impacts and how are they being addressed
  • What are the “seams” that create vulnerabilities
  • Who and what is driving cybersecurity platform requirements
  • What is being done to assess execution readiness
