The digital domain has radically increased democracy’s already vulnerable surface area. The same platforms and networks that allow us to communicate instantaneously, provide transparency in government & military and pursue global efficiencies in business are being exploited by criminals and spies, and enable the spread of misinformation. This simultaneously erodes our competitive advantages, trust in information and the reliance in our banks, corporations and governments. Join Zero Day Con and Strategic Cyber Ventures on October 16th in Washington, D.C. to examine the path forward in reducing our attack surface, managing risk, regaining control of our networks and data, and restoring trust in our cyber-powered global democratic institutions. Zero Day Con Washington DC is an independent conference wcomprised of interactive learning sessions, keynotes and panel discussions, and will feature an area designated for technology companies to demo and share their latest innovations, products and services. Open to security executives, researchers, operators, policy makers, and all defenders of democracy from private industry, non-profits, academia, military, and government. A half day of focused discussions on cyber-enabled information warfare efforts eroding democracy and the infosec capabilities we need. Network with peers and speakers at the event and during the post-conference cocktail hour.
