SOUTHCOM Tech and Cyber Days
Industry exhibitors are invited to register for the SOUTHCOM Tech and Cyber Days to have the opportunity to network with the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) personnel about the latest advancements to products and services in the marketplace. This onsite event will be part of Cybersecurity Awareness Month and will take place during a mandatory command-wide training event. Both civilian and military personnel from the command will be invited to attend the exposition, along with the J6 communications directorate. Exhibits will take place both days. Thursday will have industry speakers taking up the majority of the agenda (please see below for speaking opportunities), and the Friday event will take place during a command-wide training, we expect this to create a lot of foot traffic through the exhibit area. We anticipate 100+ attendees on each day. About U.S. Southern Command This event is hosted by the US Southern Command and their J6 Communications Directorate.
