Why should you attend the Symposium?

There is no question Mobility has quickly become a large, and growing, asset to the Defense Department, DHS, and federal government agencies and transformed into a “must-have” with combat & civilian personnel. The concept of working anywhere on any device has shaped how DOD is moving ahead in the mobile sphere and military personnel need to be able to access information wherever they are.

The Pentagon manages more than 250,000 commercial mobile devices using different operating systems, according to DoD figures.

DSI’s Mobile Device Security for Defense and Government Symposium will provide the latest updates from key organizations involved Defense Information Systems & Business Enterprise Systems addressing new objectives in wireless infrastructure, mobile devices and mobile applications to enable working on making mobile devices secure.
