What's on the white boards of leading thinkers in the US government tackling some of the biggest cybersecurity problems facing the Pentagon and intelligence community? Get a sneak peek at Passcode's event on the future of research in the Digital Age.

Arati Prabhakar, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency director, will outline some of the biggest cybersecurity challenges facing the nation – and the technologies DARPA is developing to address them – as both the public and private sectors face increasingly complex threats.
