CalCISO Visits the Beltway

CalCISO held its annual trip to Washington on August 30th and 31st, bringing together a range of leaders from the public and private sectors in a new Summit held at Tyson's Corner.

The agenda featured a distinguished lineup that included two White House representatives, two former undersecretaries of Defense, a former undersecretary of Homeland Security, and a former undersecretary of Commerce.

The 2016 Summit featured panel discussions on emerging technologies, prospects for change in technology acquisition at the Federal level, cross-sector views of information sharing, and more. Speakers included representatives of InQTel, Mach37, the National Retail Federation, NIST, and more. The program was headlined by Michael Daniel of the National Security Council and also included a luncheon conversation with Tim Polk of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Bobbie Stempfley of MITRE Corporation.

The Summit was a departure from past CalCISO visits to Washington, which previously featured several days of visits to facilities around the region - including the requisite time lost in transit.

For the 2016 edition, CalCISO convened the Summit at several locations around Tyson's Corner in Northern Virginia. The Summit was sponsored by CalCISO members PricewaterhouseCoopers and MITRE Corporation.
