2021 National Cyber Summit
The NCS planning committee has been faced with making difficult decisions as it pertains to the 2021 event. It is our ultimate goal to produce an in-person event. Therefore, we are excited to announce that the Summit will take place on September 28-30, 2021. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and take necessary action if needed to transition to a hybrid or virtual format.
