The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) is excited to bring the 2021 DoD Virtual Security Conference for Industry (DVSCI) via an online platform! Join Industry professionals from around the globe for a single track, two-day event on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 and Thursday, February 11, 2021.


This year’s conference theme - “Back to Basics” - reflects the need to re-establish industry’s understanding of the constantly-evolving security environment. As programs and polices receive revisions and updates, industry professionals must be aware of those changes. This idea shaped the conference’s topics, which include Industrial Security policy changes, “How to Run an Effective Insider Threat Program,” Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), and more!


Attendees will be able to attend seven sessions throughout the two-day conference. They will learn about updates to security programs and policies and how it impacts them. Attendees will also have the chance to interact with the presenters and ask them questions in real-time.


The DVSCI is a great way to connect with industry professionals without the potential health risks associated with traveling or in-person contact, which is critical in today’s world. Register today to enhance your security knowledge.
