AFCEA and NATO communications agency kick off joint conference on Euro-Atlantic security

TALLINN, Estonia, June 3, 2016 From the battlespace to cyberspace, Russia's aggression, instability to Europe's south and rapidly evolving cyberthreats have contributed to the need for a new strategic reality for Euro-Atlantic security. This strategy must include not only collaboration among nations but also cooperation among governments and industry.

Facilitating the conversation will be participants in the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency/AFCEA International conference June 7-9 in Tallinn, Estonia, who will focus on building resilience through secure command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR). Known as NITEC, the 2016 event will begin with an opening address by Toomas Hendrick Ilves, president of Estonia, followed by Adm. Michael S. Rogers, USN, commander, U.S. Cyber Command, director, National Security Agency/Chief, Central Security Service.

Adm. Rogers also will take part in the first panel session of the event with Ambassador Sorin D. Ducaru, assistant secretary general, Emerging Security Challenges, NATO. Panelists will discuss the context of the next NATO Summit, which takes place in Warsaw in July. At the summit, allies will decide on the balance between a forward presence and the alliance's ability to reinforce.

The first day's activities will wrap up with an NCI panel discussion about new ways to work with industry partners both to network and to defend the networks. Paul Smith, the agency's chief strategy officer, will moderate the panel.

Terry Halvorsen, chief information officer, U.S. Defense Department, will open NITEC's second day of activities, speaking about how to improve cyber basics through leadership, accountability and transparency. Cyber also will be the key topic of several of the day's panel discussions, including a presentation by Peter Scaruppe, director of acquisition, NCI Agency, about business opportunities.

Commercial sector opportunities also will be the focus on day three. In addition to members of the NCI Agency conversing about best practices and common mistakes in bid proposals, Patrick Fesquet, director of procurement, NATO Support and Procurement Agency and Liviu Lazar, industry relations coordinator, strategy directorate, NATO Defence Investment Division, will describe business opportunities with NATO.
