Founded by Winn, InfowarCon was first held in 1994, and ran from that time to 2010 across the United States and Europe. It brought together military, private sector and law enforcement under the meme: “we are all in this together.”
For 2014, it was made clear that IWC should be revived and returned to its original cutting edge nature for four compelling reasons: a severe lag between the West and its adversaries in cyber warfare, weaponization of advanced technologies backed by economic interest, the fact that new technologies are almost always used against us in the end, and the consistent need to fully understand modes of attack in order to properly defend against them.
After a successful conference and reception in January of 2014, it was made even clearer that IWC should continue in future years. It will be held again April 28-30, 2015.
