Open Source Summit North America


OpenGovCon logo


OpenGovCon provides a focused experience built to accelerate federal service delivery. Join us as we connect federal policy owners, federal mission owners, and innovative federal and commercial solution providers through roundtable discussions, lighting talks, and hands on experiences to both inspire and provide practical next steps to benefit the American public.

OpenGovCon will highlight the threats facing commercial applications, public digital infrastructure, and warfighting capabilities and provide real word/practical examples of putting the regulatory and best practices examples by the NSA, DOD, NIST, CISA, NITA, DISA, and OpenSSF into production.
