In the wake of the sudden, unexpected decision to postpone the GEOINT 2013 Symposium, which was scheduled to be held in Tampa Oct. 13-16, more than 200 Intelligence Community members gathered Oct. 15 for a USGIF special event at the Embassy Suites in Springfield, VA.
As a result of the ongoing government shutdown, USGIF announced Oct. 8 the decision to postpone its 10th annual GEOINT Symposium to April 2014. The special event offered community members the opportunity to reflect upon this news, look ahead to the spring, and network.
USGIF CEO Keith Masback said there is “no playbook” for postponing an event the size of the GEOINT Symposium, which was expected to bring more than 4,000 attendees and around $5 million in revenue to the Tampa Bay area.

Cyber practitioners in the federal sector have always needed better ways to collaborate and coordinate and have always been on the lookout for new ways to address challenges. But this year it is especially important. Attacks are up, funds to modernize have been zeroed out, staff has been reduced and now on top of that the shutdown has made things even harder. Meanwhile critical information still needs protecting and adversaries remain as persistent as ever.
This means it is more important than ever to find new ideas to better defend our infrastructure.
We have crafted the agenda of the Third Annual FedCyber Summit (6 Nov 2013) to do just that.
