Unprecedented, technology-driven and highly interactive, CESG 2014 program significantly advances the conference's nine-year evolution as the premier business and policy forum on issues driving the application of advanced technologies to priority government and commercial missions.

CES Government 2014 focuses on the global cyber threat and its expansive reach to government, industry and critical economic infrastructure. Today's cyber threat is global and touches all sectors of society; it is expansive, dangerous and exploding in its capacity to cripple vital government, electronic commerce, and infrastructure operations. We will examine personal, economic and national security as it relates to the energy, finance, communications, and technology industries.

Gartner predicts that global spending on information security will total over $64 billion in 2013 and expects it to grow on average, 8.7% annually through 2017.
