Nextgov Prime 2015 to Shine Spotlight on Cybersecurity and Data


In light of heightened attention around federal cybersecurity and data, we're excited to announce Nextgov Prime 2015 will focus on these topics in hopes to spark ideas and conversations on how to best navigate both landscapes.

Nextgov Prime: Data, Cybersecurity and the Government of Tomorrow will give federal IT influencers insight into the top challenges of managing, leveraging and securing data and tackling emerging cyberthreats in 2015 and beyond.

The event will gather the best minds from government and private industry -- technology CXOs, innovators and rising stars -- to explore ideas and solutions around big data and data management, cybersecurity and more.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

  • Shane Harris, senior correspondent at Daily Beast and author of "@War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex"
  • John Quigg, senior adviser at Spurrier Capital Partners and former technical director of the U.S. Cyber Command
  • Kathryn Sullivan, administrator at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

This one-day event takes place Sept. 9 at the Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel. You can register here.

Finally, don’t forget June 30 is your last chance to submit your nominations for the Nextgov 2015 Bold Awards, which take place during Prime.
