In collaboration with US Coast Guard, DIU, NSIN, and Gordian Knot, GovFuture was invited to ran a special GovFuture Forum Silicon Valley event on November 8 at Stanford University. This Silicon Valley centered west coast event brought together thought leaders across the defense tech space and served as a platform for in-depth exploration and dialogue, shedding light on critical facets of defense tech.
We had great presentations from the US Coast Guard’s 2003 Cyber Protection Team, Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), National Security Innovation Network (NSIN), and the Gordian Knot Center for National Security Innovation.
We had an equally amazing panel discussion focused on cybersecurity threats and how the Coast Guard is helping keep our ports safe, examples of collaboration between Coast Guard and industry that leveraged DIUs process, how groups like NSIN proactively foster and support the development of new communities of innovators, both within and outside traditional defense and government circles, and the role public-private partnerships play in advancing cyber and defense technologies.
This very successful GovFuture Forum Silicon Valley event marks the initiation of a broader initiative. The rich discussions and insights gained from this gathering will serve as a catalyst for future engagements. Our commitment extends beyond this singular occasion, as we embark on a journey to take these invaluable discussions on the road. Anticipate forthcoming sessions tailored for diverse groups, spanning various regions, and targeting specific agency-focused events as we continue to bring together all areas of the public sector ecosystem.
