Video Clip on Cyber Endeavor 2020:

Cyber Endeavor has been mentioned by Adm. Stavridis in his March 2011 testimony before the house and senate armed services committees (, as well as in the March 2011 Department of Defense Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace.

Cyber Endeavor has been in existence since 2009 and is growing larger and more mature every year. We are looking for ideas from governments, industry, and academia on how to make this program an even bigger success in the following years.
