About the Asymmetric Threats Symposia

The Asymmetric Threats symposia provide a forum for thought leadership on national security. The first Asymmetric Threats series focused on U.S. and global security. Symposium One, co-sponsored by CACI and the National Defense University and held on May 8, 2008 at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C., defined the asymmetrical threat problem. Symposium Two, co-sponsored by CACI and USNI and held at Ft. Myer, Virginia on October 21, 2008, addressed the efficacy of soft power instruments such as diplomacy and economic aid. Symposium Three, co-sponsored by CACI and USNI and held at Ft. Myer on March 24, 2009, concluded the series by addressing how soft power can be combined with military hard power to form "smart power" tools for defeating asymmetric threats. The second Asymmetric Threats series focuses on cybersecurity, and the first symposium in this series, co-sponsored by CACI and USNI and held at Ft. Myer on March 2, 2010, centered upon countering challenges to the global supply chain. Countering Cyber Challenges to the Industrial Base is the second symposium in the cyber threat series.
