ARLINGTON, VA – The National Defense Industrial Association is proud to announce its 28th division, concentrating on cyber-enabled technologies as they are used in national security and defense operations.
“The Cyber and Emerging Technologies Division will focus on leveraging the power of advanced, multi-domain cyber technologies to provide new and innovative approaches to national security and military operations,” said Heather Havens, NDIA’s vice president of program development.
Havens and Capt. Frank Michael, USN (Ret.), senior vice president, program development, lead the new group at NDIA. Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, USAF (Ret.) is the division chair.
“The Cyber and Emerging Technologies Division brings to industry and government executives a forum to address the most pressing multi-domain cyber and emerging technologies to support the warfighter,” Michael said.
