Cyber test and evaluation continues to be on the forefront of the acquisition community. In a recent article in The Defense AT&L Journal, The Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics commented that achieving a survivable cyber test rating in an operational environment is nearly impossible in the current test environment.

This workshop provides an opportunity to share ideas among experienced T&E professionals regarding threat and requirements, test capabilities, cloud-based and IT services, and evaluation methodologies. Our goal is to share ideas on how to better characterize cyber security threats, evaluate system performance when attacked by a cyber security threat, and assess risk of using the system in the presence of a cyber security threat.

Please join us in Aberdeen, Maryland as members of the T&E community from academia, industry, and government discuss the evolving discipline of Cyber Security T&E. Come share your thoughts, connect with others, and learn from some of the leading experts at this conference. The cyber threat will only increase with time. See you there!
