NCX Webinar

Innovation & Change: A Young Leader's View of Breaking Trans-Generational Leadership
Presented by Andy Heo
Friday, May 31, 2019 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM MST

 

With the rise of cyber security’s visibility amongst various industries, it is very clear that a different type of employee has moved to the forefront of a company’s vision.  Those who are involved with cyber operations or defense are charge with a critical task that was typically left to the basements of facilities where no interaction would happen with technicians until something was wrong.  Now, armed with a seat at the main conference room table with a CEO, cyber leaders have to bring prepared plans that have been integrated with operations without disturbing the flow of the team.  How can current leaders manage such a sudden change of perception of the technical nerd?  Why does it matter?

In his previous full-time military capacity, Dr. Heo’s primary responsibility was directing information assurance efforts of several ground stations that are part of the space-based infrared system (SBIRS) constellation, providing up-to-date secure data and meeting mission requirements of developing, acquiring, and sustaining space-based infrared surveillance, tracking and targeting capabilities for missile early warning/defense, battlespace awareness and technical intelligence. He has worked under Air Combat Command (ACC), Air Force Communications Agency (now known as the Air Force Network Integration Center), and now currently under AFSPC.

Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium 2018:

AFCEA2018Symposium

NCX will be exhibitng at the Rocky Mountain Cyberspace Symposium 2018 organized by the Rocky Mountain Chapter of The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA).

 
The Symposium is being held March 5 - 8, 2018 at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. 
 
For more information on the Symposium click: 

Come see us at Booth 18 !

 

"The 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."

 

This year's theme for the Symposium:

“Secure the Enterprise: Strategy and Data Analytics/Cyber Resilience/Multi-Domain Ops."

Industry and DoD experts will convene to discuss enterprise security across multiple warfighting domains. Conversations will focus on the continued efforts required to shape the connected battlespace of the future, understand vulnerabilities of unsecured assets, and communicate critical information and data for joint interdependence. The exhibit hall is full of industry, academia and nonprofit organizations that will give you the opportunity to learn about cutting- edge cyber technologies and the chance to share your own ideas.

The Cyberspace Symposium not only brings government and industry together to exchange ideas related to today's toughest cyber challenges, but it also makes a tremendous difference in our region in two ways:

• RMC - AFCEA invests in our country’s future by raising money for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. The Cyberspace Symposium allows the chapter to consistently give out more than $100,000 in scholarships and grants to Colorado STEM students and teachers annually.

• RMC - AFCEA raises money for Wounded Airmen, helping Colorado families cope with disabilities resulting from service to our nation.
