CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced the 10th symposium in the critical Asymmetric Threat symposia series on national security challenges, titled “What Does It Take to Protect America?

The symposium is co-sponsored with the Center for Security Policy (CSP), the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), and the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies, an affiliate of the Air Force Association.
This non-partisan, not‐for‐profit symposium is part of the Asymmetric Threat series, established in 2008 by CACI as a forum for furthering the national dialogue on asymmetric threats to national security.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Admiral John M. Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), and General Stephen W. Wilson, Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force (VCSAF).
According to CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, “The 10th symposium in the Asymmetric Threat symposia series is a significant opportunity to reflect on lessons learned over the past decade and help craft innovative and multi-dimensional approaches across government and industry to defeat adversaries who challenge us in every domain. CACI and our symposium co-sponsors, the Center for Security Policy, the Institute for the Study of War, and the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies, are committed to advancing this critical dialogue.”
