32nd Annual Conference

Innovations in Cybersecurity Awareness and Training: A 360 Degree Perspective

 

Postponed: TBD

Hello FISSEA Community Members,

As many of you are aware of, the 5 week government shutdown impacted many agencies including the Department of Commerce and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). As a result, FISSEA and other NIST programs and projects were affected during that time. Therefore, in consideration of the time loss for conference planning and promotion and our dedication to making the FISSEA conference a great experience for all who attend, we are postponing the conference until a later date to be determined. We will send out an e-mail communication and update the website (nist.gov/fissea) with the new date and deadlines for presentations proposals and award nominations once those details are solidified.

We appreciate your patience and we look forward to your continued support of FISSEA.

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to fisseamembership@nist.gov and cc: raechell.finch@nist.gov

 

Thanks,

Clarence Williams

FISSEA Chairperson
