HammerCon is the national convention of the Military Cyber Professionals Association (MCPA) and serves as the premier gathering of/by/for the American military cyber community.

This year's theme is "Understanding our PAST to succeed in the PRESENT and shape the FUTURE". With the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the "first cyber command" (Joint Task Force-Computer Network Defense (JTF-CND)) this year, it is a great time to reflect on how far the military cyber community has grown and what lies ahead!

So many speakers, exhibitors, and activities! MCPA members and US military attend for FREE. Find more details at the event site here. Sponsor and exhibitor info here. See pics/vids/info about last year's event here
