Cyber Smoke

Rising From the Ashes – Cyber Smoke

Cyber Smoke was founded in 2011 by six industry and government professionals for the sole purpose of collaborating on cyber security at the Department of Homeland Security. Ten years later, it is still the most talked about and widely attended networking event in the Federal market.

While it was stubbed out for much of 2020 as the pandemic took its toll on in-person events, we are excited to announce the return of MeriTalk’s Cyber Smoke.

Join us on July 29 for a happy hour as we reignite our cigars and enjoy cocktails on the patio.

Be sure to join the Cyber Smoke LinkedIn group for updates on future events.

As we return to in-person events MeriTalk is committed to providing a safe and healthy atmosphere for our guests. All guests must register ahead of the event or be prepared to provide full contact details upon arrival. We are working closely with Morton’s Steakhouse and following all current guidance and safety precautions. We ask that anyone exhibiting signs/symptoms of any virus or illness on July 29 please stay home and forego the event.

We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring the safety and comfort level of all other attendees.
