Why you should attend this year’s Symposium:
DSI’s DoD Information Warfare Symposium will bring together leaders from the DoD, IC, Federal Agencies, Private Industry, and Academia to discuss DoD efforts to fight and win in an increasingly congested information Environment.
The DoD Information Warfare Symposium is designed as an educational and training “Town Hall” forum, where thought leaders and key policy-makers across military services, defense agencies, and civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions and debate. The DoD Information Warfare Symposium will focus on initiatives to equip and train the warfighter to operate in contested information environments and we will seek to generate understanding of the capabilities necessary to ensure that the force will be able to execute information operations for years to come.
