DAU hosts the virtual Cyber Gov Life every 4th Thursday of each month starting at 1:00 p.m. ET for one hour. These live virtual sessions were created for the DoD Cybersecurity community, which not only includes Cybersecurity, but also program managers, analysts, engineers, software developers, consultants, etc. The idea of this series is to connect people and resources monthly in this community together.SpeakersImage
