Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium 2024 (RMCS24)! The Rocky Mountain Chapter of AFCEA is once again honored to invite you to our annual forum for industry, academia, and government to discuss and propose solutions to the challenges of cybersecurity, community cyber readiness and homeland defense facing our nation. Our theme this year is “Posturing of Cyber Forces for Near-Peer Conflict.”
As the digital landscape continues to evolve, the significance of cyberspace in modern warfare cannot be overstated. In the realm of near-peer conflict, where the adversaries possess comparable technological capabilities, the posturing of cyber forces becomes paramount. RMCS24 will explore the multifaceted challenges and opportunities associated with the strategy, policies and workforce development required to effectively prepare for near-peer engagements.
Some of the topics for discussion include:
Our Exhibit Hall will be full of industry, government, academia and non-profit organizations that will give you the opportunity to learn about cutting edge cyber technologies relevant to these challenges, and the chance to share your own ideas with peers from across the nation. Whether you are an individual attendee, a sponsor, an exhibitor, a speaker, or one of our many volunteers, we know you’ll find this year’s symposium a world-class event, hosted at a world-class venue … with no entrance fee for military and government attendees.
Our Cyberspace Symposium not only brings us together to exchange ideas related to today’s toughest challenges, it also allows our chapter to make a tremendous investment in the future of technical fields — allowing us to donate more than $500,000 for scholarships, grants and other STEM-related activities across the community this year!
RMCS24 is poised to be another great event. I hope you will join us in making this yet another successful symposium!
