The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) held its annual Digital Solutions Conference on Cybersecurity Nov. 13-15, 2022 in Old Town Alexandria.

The conference, once limited to the less-than-truckload (LTL) industry, was opened to the entire trucking industry this year. NMFTA has been a leader for more than a decade in addressing cybersecurity issues, including important research work and critical educational efforts on the topic of cybersecurity for the American Trucking Associations and other organizations within the industry.
