This workshop, held at the McCrary Institute at Auburn University in November 2019, was a success by the numbers, with over 75 people attending for all or part of the two-day workshop. It was also a success by representation, with tier one defense companies, leading Silicon Valley tech companies, emerging leaders in all four of our key technology sectors – AI, 5G, ID, and Quantum. Renown academic institutions, current Government leaders from Capitol Hill, Homeland, DoD, and more, as well as critical experts in cybersecurity on a global scale—all providing voice to this critical issue.
This workshop was also a success by the high levels of individual involvement, with everyone in attendance providing input in at least one of the seven breakout sessions we held. Further, this workshop was a success by what we heard and learned, from leaders in Congress to CISA to Cyberspace Solarium Commission – a consistent Federal voice to industry to rally around the Moonshot trusted ecosystem goals.
