Like in past years, this year's STEM & Cyberrsecurity Festival coincides with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Annual Legislative Conference. This large conference attracts over 10,000 of the top executives, policy makers, and academic leaders. Over the years, the festival has become known as the nation’s top forum on boosting cybersecurity training and diversity.
