Join FBC in March at the major military installations on the island of Oahu! This year marks the 26th consecutive year that FBC will coordinate the Hawaii Information Technology Series, a stretch of five one-day events. These events have become a yearly conduit to share information, collaboration, and to discuss to cybersecurity best practices and IT modernization strategies. Meet Army, Navy, Airforce, and Marine personnel from Pacific Forces located on military-centric Oahu. The series includes events at Fort Shafter, Schofield Barracks, Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam (JBPHH), NCTAMS PAC – NSA, and Camp HM Smith – HQ USINDOPACOM. This is a great opportunity to interact with personnel in an environment that supports the DoD mission. Technology Day at Fort Shafter includes training sessions provided by participating industry companies (talk to your FBC rep!). All technology products and services are appropriate for these events.
