Workshop Overview

Cyber Endeavour is an interactive, working level event for leaders and operators to discuss the most critical Cyber challenges facing our nation and armed services, and to identify potential solutions.  Cyber Endeavour is a two-part event that consists of a Leadership Symposium and Cyber-X Games.  The Leadership Symposium is 3-days of presentations and panels by authorities from government, services, academia and industry.  Cyber-X Games is a co-located 3-day operational exercise where participants are challenged in scenarios relevant to the topics discussed in the Symposium.

Our theme for this year is “Cyber…The First Tactical Mile.”  The threads for each day are listed below.  Each day has operational relevance for different commands and program offices. Day 1 focuses on vehicle operations with PEO Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors (IEW&S) and Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) systems. Day 2 focuses on Identity Operations for SOCOM and CENTCOM. Day 3 focuses on tactical cyber for the intelligence community.

CE2015 is a DoD approved event, sponsored by the DoD IO Center for Research.
