May 23 @ 7:30 am - 6:00 pm EDT


General Information

Only once a year can you network with the information management officers, IT professionals, cybersecurity officers, technical staff, signal officers, and communications specialists at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). It’s during their on-site Information Technology & Cybersecurity Day.

Now in its 19th year, the Information Technology & Cybersecurity Day at JBLM is the only event of its kind held in this part of Washington. That means it attracts relevant IT and cybersecurity personnel from Lewis-McChord, Madigan Army Hospital, and Camp Murray.

Hosted by AFCEA – Pacific Northwest Chapter (PNC), the event is held at a perfectly positioned, tented location on Fort Lewis Main and it covers the latest in IT advancements, IT modernization strategies and cybersecurity best practices.

As the 4th largest military base in the world by population, JBLM has more than 25,000 soldiers and civilian workers on-site. All are invited. In the past, the 125-or-so personnel that attended were an influential group. They included:

  • Cybersecurity Professionals
  • Communications Officers
  • IT Specialists
  • Network Planners, Techs & Operators
  • Network Enterprise Center (NEC) Personnel
  • Team Members from Cyber Support, Cyber Transport, Cyber Surety, and Cyber Systems
  • Telecom Specialists
  • And More
