Cybersecurity is in the forefront of the DoD acquisition community. It is particularly challenging for the non-Information Technology (IT) community to understand, capture, and interpret cybersecurity requirements. The Test & Evaluation (T&E) community needs to develop strategies for “bolting-on” and “baking-in” cybersecurity into legacy systems and new acquisition programs; all while executing T&E activities of non-IT systems. This workshop provides the opportunity to share experiences, lessons learned, and generate new ideas on cybersecurity from “Requirements to Test & Evaluation” amongst experienced T&E professionals.

WHY PRESENT AT AN ITEA WORKSHOP

If you've conducted ground-breaking research, used "best-in-class" techniques, deployed  successful processes, or developed unique procedures in the field of test and evaluation, work that your peers would be interested in learning, presenting at ITEA Workshops is an important part of your professional development, by providing you with an amazing opportunity to learn from your peers, share your experiences, and contribute to advancing the Test and Evaluation profession.

Presenting at ITEA Workshops provides you the chance to:

  • Represent your field of interest, allowing researchers in other disciplines, policymakers, and the public to become aware of the innovative work being generated in your particular area of expertise;
  • Practice your presentation skills;
  • Help you develop the expertise needed to discuss your work in a clear and meaningful way;
  • Learn how to answer specific questions and present your work to a range of individuals (who may or may not be familiar with your field of research);
  • Contribute to your overall professional profile by showing others that you regularly disseminate your work to colleagues, as well as that you keep up-todate on cutting-edge and best practices in T&E; and,
  • Help you establish contacts that will foster friendships with other motivated T&E professionals who can be resources for you at any stage of your career.
