The National Cyber Summit planning committee has been faced with making difficult decisions as it pertains to the 2021 event. It is our ultimate goal to produce an in-person event. Therefore, we are excited to announce the National Cyber Summit will take place on September 28-30, 2021 at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
As the Summit approaches the event management team will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and take necessary action if needed to transition from the currently scheduled in-person event to a hybrid or virtual format. Over the next few days, we will be updating the website with new information regarding the Summit. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
All registrations and exhibitor/sponsor agreements that were received for the 2020 Summit have been transitioned to the 2021 National Cyber Summit have been automatically carried over to the new September dates and no further action is required by participants at this time. Thank you for your understanding during this time.
We look forward to seeing you at National Cyber Summit 2021 in September!
Register now for the 12th annual National Cyber Summit, held September 28-30, 2021, at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
About the National Cyber Summit
National Cyber Summit is the nation’s most innovative cybersecurity-technology event, offering unique educational, collaborative and workforce development opportunities for industry visionaries and rising leaders. NCS offers more value than similar cyber conferences with diverse focus-areas, premier speakers, and unmatched accessibility. Our core focus is on three things: education, collaboration, and innovation.
Held in Huntsville, Alabama, one of the nation's largest technological hubs, the Summit attracts both government and commercial participants. Long known as the home to Department of Defense organizations and civilian departments and agencies including DHS, NIST, NASA, TVA, NSA, and DOE, Huntsville also has many other industries represented. Companies are diverse and include healthcare, automotive and energy industries, academia, genetic research, and high technology.
“The cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges our nation faces. Cybersecurity affects nearly every aspect of our lives – critical infrastructure, banking, healthcare, transportation, and more. Our nation’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on how well we manage cybersecurity,”said National Cyber Summit Chair Rodney Robertson.
The event is hosted by the North Alabama Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (NAC-ISSA), Cyber Huntsville Corporation (CHC), Auburn University Research, and University of Alabama in Huntsville.
“There is no better place to address cybersecurity than in Huntsville, Alabama,” said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “This city is at the pinnacle of technology, and the National Cyber Summit brings together the best and brightest from our government, industry, and academic technical community.”
