Three tracks have been designed to enable attendees to gain the maximum benefit from the NICE 2014 Conference:
Track 1: Workforce and Skills Development
This track is designed for workforce development professionals, and provides exciting and highly-actionable sessions that identify key strategies and tools with which they can build our nation's cybersecurity workforce.
Leading-edge professionals in both commercial and government sectors have come together to present a powerhouse lineup of panels and individual sessions covering such topics as:
Track 2: Education - Building the Cyber Generation
This track targets educator and student users of cybersecurity training strategies ... and the professionals developing them. The Education track provides case studies on cutting edge cybersecurity curricula and technologies designed to accelerate the building of the Cyber Generation.
Intriguing, provocative and implementable-results sessions have been carefully constructed and aligned for maximum benefit for teachers from middle school through college. Exciting session topics include:
Track 3: Industry-Driven Initiatives
This track provides panels and presentations created by leading cyber employers describing how they are actively developing, supporting and driving the cyber education movement. These sessions describe internal activities being implemented by their own Fortune 500 companies, as well as the tools, systems and processes they develop for other companies in the education space to use with their clients.
Here is a sampling of the sessions designed for industry and workforce attendees, providing immediate take-away value:
Special ... Birds of a Feather (BoF) Luncheon Sessions
If having three tracks isn't enough for the cyber-insatiable conference goers this year, we've created a quasi "fourth track" to be conducted during the 1.5-hour lunch periods of the Conference.
We received so many great presentation proposals from experts across the nation that we couldn't possibly include them all within the limited time of our two-day conference. In order to solve this wonderful dilemma, we decided to accept 36 of the abundantly-rich overflow proposals and we're having these speakers each host a roundtable discussion right during lunch! Attendees will be able to grab a lunch, select a table, and munch along while listening to yet another terrific presentation ... with a great opportunity for interactive involvement.
The Birds of a Feather lunchtime sessions include topics such as:
See You Soon!
So that's the preview of our line-up for this year's conference! As you'll see in the Agenda, we also have some incredibly powerful Keynotes set for each day, as well as a way cool reception on the first evening featuring "CyberTini's on the Lake" that will enable attendees to relax and network with industry colleagues and educators.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the NICE 2014 Conference and Expo!
