This bi-annual conference, presented in partnership with the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), serves as the forum for executive-level security leadership and policy-makers across the federal agencies and U.S. Industry to convene to address major government security topics. Don't miss this opportunity for candid discussion, high-level networking, and updates on important subjects. 

Themes and challenges addressed include:

  • Continuing security clearance reforms and implementation,
  • Insider threat guidance,
  • Transitioning cybersecurity requirements and policy,
  • Sharing knowledge of “the business” of security,
  • Late-breaking special security and NISPOM issues, and more. 

A series of moderated expert panels and key leadership speakers provide insights from diverse perspectives, enabling participants to identify critical issues and needs in order to develop government-and industry-partnered creative solutions--solutions that can advance our nation’s security and mission success.

*This event is closed to the press.

*Please note: The agenda for this conference has changed from previous conferences. It will now start in the afternoon of Monday, November 8, and conclude at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 10. Monday, November 8, contains industry-only sessions.

At this time, this event is scheduled to be conducted in person at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles in Chantilly, VA.

The health and safety of our members, registrants, exhibitors, and staff constitute our highest priority. We will continually monitor reports from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to adjust plans as needed.

NDIA is implementing all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by WHO, CDC, DoD, and OPM as well as state and local health authorities. We will work with all symposium partners to ensure the safety of all meeting and symposium participants.

All participants can expect to see heightened levels of onsite cleanliness and accommodations. We encourage all event participants to take CDC-recommended common-sense health and safety precautions.

As symposium details are finalized, NDIA will provide full updates for the overall event, including what in-person attendees can expect. As these decisions are made, NDIA will be fully transparent and communicate with event participants. Please check our onsite COVID 19 FAQ page for more information.
