Michael Niggel

Michael Niggel, CEO of Advanced Concepts and Technologies International, highlighted the company’s cybersecurity efforts during his presentation at the National Defense Industrial Association’s 9th Defense Industrial Discussions event held last month.

ACT I said Niggel offered insights into cyber-related challenges facing the Defense Department and cyber protection initiatives such as the Air Force Association’s CyberPatriots.

The CyberPatriots program aims to educate middle and high school students about cyber threats and inspire them to develop new systems that can help address cyber issues.

The DID forum took place at NDIA’s headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, on May 11 and 12.

The event aimed to foster the sharing of information on national security and defense cooperation policies and practices between the U.S. and Japan.
