AUGUSTA, GA– August 07, 2017– About 3,300 registrants are expected to attend the fifth annual TechNet Augusta convention in Augusta, Georgia this week.
According to the Augusta Chronicle, the event will take place on August 8th-9th at the Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center.
TechNet Augusta provides a forum for key military professionals from the U.S. Defense Department, armed services and U.S. Coast Guard to discuss issues and share ideas. Government, industry and academic speakers address a broad range of topics and focus on the importance of the network, security issues and training to enable operational forces to modernize and be ready to meet emerging challenges in 2025 and beyond.
In addition to high-level military speakers and panelists, continuing education sessions, and special events, this three-day interactive forum offers industry the opportunity to meet with potential partners and clients on the convention center exhibit floor
The event is popular largely because of its proximity to Fort Gordon, whose U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence operates the military’s largest communications and cybersecurity training centers.
Home to more than 115 Information Security companies, Georgia has a strong Information Security cluster, which includes industry giants such as IBM, Verizon Business, and Dell SecureWorks.
