Cyberspace is one of the most critical domains in maintaining our nation’s superiority. However, the 2018 General Accounting Office (GAO) report on “Weapon Systems Cybersecurity” states, by using basic tools and techniques, testers were able to take control of major weapon systems under development with ease and operate largely undetected. Challenges of weapon systems cybersecurity include complex and intense software in systems, common tactical networks, lack of test infrastructure and tools, lack of test assets and cyber T&E workforce, data rights issues and many more. This workshop will focus on solutions and approaches to overcome these challenges with special emphasis on the Weapon Systems. Our goal is to share practical knowledge and information to rapidly enhance the Weapon Systems Cybersecurity posture.

Please join us as members of the T&E community from academia, industry, and government discuss the evolving discipline of Cybersecurity T&E. Come share your thoughts, connect with others, and learn from some of the leading experts at this Workshop.
