Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium 2022 (RMCS22)! The Rocky Mountain Chapter of AFCEA is honored to have you as our guest, and we hope you enjoy Colorado Springs and the entire Pikes Peak region.
Our Symposium provides a national forum for industry and government to work together to help solve the challenges of cybersecurity, community cyber readiness and national defense.
Our theme this year is: “Securing Partnerships and Technologies." Modern organizations, whether Federal or Commercial, are increasingly interdependent on each other for mission critical pieces of their operations. Events in late 2020 and early 2021 highlighted some of the risks and vulnerabilities that can come with this dependance. Whether it is supply chain risk as demonstrated by the SolarWinds hack, or more traditional exploitations like those seen against Microsoft Exchange; as we all increasingly rely on trusted partners for our success, a critical look at existing and new strategies for securing our shared requirements becomes necessary.
Our Exhibit Hall is full of industry, academia and non-profit organizations that will give you the opportunity to learn about cutting edge cyber technologies and the chance to share your own ideas.
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, The Broadmoor Hotel. Also, just like in past years, we are providing free entrance to all three days of the Symposium for military and government attendees.
Our Cyberspace Symposium not only brings government, industry and academia together to exchange ideas related to today's toughest cyber challenges, but it also helps our chapter make a tremendous difference in our region. The Symposium allows the chapter to consistently give out more than $300,000 in scholarships and grants to Colorado STEM students and teachers annually!
RMCS22 is poised to be another great event. I hope you will join us in making this yet another successful symposium!
