K2Share Sponsors AFCEA D.C. Cybersecurity Symposium


16 June  2009


WASHINGTON, D.C.— K2Share, LLC, a veteran-owned small business and trusted cybersecurity partner to the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense (DHS and DoD), is a premiere sponsor for the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, Washington, D.C., Chapter (AFCEA DC) Cybersecurity Symposium which is scheduled for June 25, 2009, at the Capital Hilton


The symposium spotlights cybersecurity’s rise to the top of the Obama Administration’s technology priority list, while offering a framework for the national and regional communities of government, industry, academia, and nonprofit organizations that will eventually come together to address the cybersecurity priorities and needs of the Administration. The event will provide an opportunity for various government officials from the Administration, Congress, federal civilian agencies, and the Military to express their needs, requirements, and challenges to an audience of cybersecurity industry professionals who can assist the federal government and its partners in reaching their goals.


K2Share’s support for the event comes from the company’s commitment to security as a practice and its belief in the importance of cybersecurity in protecting our Homeland. “As security engineers of state and federal national preparedness systems, we experience firsthand the need to move beyond compliance and into a domain of active information assurance. AFCEA’s Cybersecurity Symposium presents a dynamic opportunity for our diverse stakeholder community to come together inside of a common framework of understanding of the upcoming cybersecurity challenges we face as a nation,” said Pedro Smith-Blondet, Vice President Federal, K2Share, LLC.
