Manhattan, NY ( March 28, 2012 - With worries about the threat of cyber warfare and the importance in the development and defense of the cyber domain, the United States must prepare itself to better defend against malicious cyber attacks.

IDGA'S Cyber Warfare & Security Summit 2012 will cover in-depth discussions about the current plan scenarios for cyber attacks and the importance of international alliances for cyber security. In addition, as the military is increasing its protection of sensitive networks and operating systems, the summit will present insightful case studies such as 'protecting networks' and 'which government and private company systems are most in danger'.
