Description

The Joint Information Environment, under development by the Department of Defense, is at a critical stage of its formation. This centerpiece of the Department’s information sharing and security strategy depends on a matrix of participating organizations to adapt technical solutions and adopt enterprise management in the name of efficiency, security, and reliability. Neither a turnkey solution nor a program of record, JIE intends to serve collective defense and security needs and those partners, government and civilian, who contribute to these missions. A community of partners, linked by commitment to JIE success, need to understand the state of current and future developments in this ‘mission imperative.’ AFCEA International is honored to host an important conversation between these mission partners at its JIE Mission Partner Symposium 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland from May 12 to May 14, 2014. Industry will join leaders from the DoD CIO, Defense Information Systems Agency, Joint Chiefs of Staff, CYBERCOM, military services, intelligence community, and other government offices and agencies to address the progress and way ahead for JIE. The operational theme centers on the teamwork, relevant guidance and priorities, and associated perspectives of mission partners united in development of this collective capability.

 

Addressing the progress and way ahead for JIE, participants will include:

  • Chief Information Officer, Department of Defense

  • Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)

  • Joint Chiefs of Staff

  • CYBERCOM

  • Military Services

  • Intelligence Community

  • Other Government Offices and Agencies

  • Industry

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
