15Dec AF IT Modernization and Digital Transformation Forum

AF IT Modernization and Digital Transformation Forum

The remote work force is here to stay.  This relatively rapid expansion of the Air and Space Force’s digital footprint comes with a growing number of infrastructure challenges and cyber security threats, requiring leaders to re-assess how networks and services are delivered. While JADC2, zero trust, artificial intelligence, and machine learning remain at the forefront of most senior leader discussions today, many of these are dependent on an aging infrastructure unable to meet the demands of our warfighters today.

27Jan Digital Currency and National Security Forum

Digital Currency and National Security Forum

The Potomac Officers Club’s Digital Currency and National Security Forum will bring together distinguished federal government and industry leaders to discuss the implications, risks, challenges and opportunities digital currencies pose for the future of the U.S. economy and national security.

Since the 2009 inception of Bitcoin, the world’s first decentralized cryptocurrency, digital currencies have fundamentally transformed wealth storage and financial systems on a global scale. However, because they operate based on blockchain technology and do not require a central authority, digital currencies are raising increased concern among government officials.

Now, with over 300 million users worldwide, this unregulated global economy is posing new threats to national security. 

John C. Inglis, the first national cyber director and former deputy director of the National Security Agency, will serve as the forum’s opening keynote speaker to detail the nation’s plan for regulation as digital currencies continue to gain worldwide importance. Inglis, who holds three Presidential Rank Awards, will discuss how the federal government is working to build and maintain partnerships between the Treasury, USCYBERCOM and industry to address the safe adoption of digital currencies for government agencies and contractors.

Also keynoting will be the Honorable Juan Zarate, former security advisor to President George W. Bush, assistant secretary for terrorist financing and author of “Treasury’s War: The Unleashing of a New Era of Financial Warfare.” He currently serves as senior adviser at CSIS as well as global co-managing partner and chief strategy officer for K2 Integrity. Zarate is an expert on global finance, anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (CFT), and he was also appointed twice by Pope Francis to serve for more than 5 years on the board of the Vatican’s Supervisory and Financial Information Authority.

Join us on January 27th for the Potomac Officers Club’s Digital Currency and National Security Forum.

Achieve Information Dominance: Counter Gray Zone Warfare Through Unifying Data

The DoD is constantly trying to keep pace with an evolving adversary, which creates challenges in the combat environment with the readiness of our forces and their ability to regain readiness against an enemy that can challenge us across the board. The key to innovating is the speed of integrating and exploiting innovative technology into the digital battlefield through data-driven decisions and investments that enable information advantage to gain situational understanding and awareness for decision dominance.

2022 4th Annual Artificial Intelligence Summit

Over the last decade, landmark artificial intelligence advancements have drastically altered the federal and industry landscape and influenced government agencies’ evolving technology priorities and initiatives. 

 

Federal officials are working to incorporate industry technology breakthroughs across defense and homeland security sectors to computationally augment capabilities of service members and warfighters in the field, advance unmanned vehicle development and deliver greater benefits to civilians through AI-enhanced government services.

 

Join the Potomac Officers Club for the platform’s 4th Annual 2022 AI Summit to hear notable executive leaders within the GovCon sector discuss important AI advancements achieved over the past year as well as cutting-edge development strategies for 2022 and beyond.
