With a new year comes new goals, priorities and challenges for stakeholders involved in Homeland Defense and Security for the United States. This senior and expert-led Summit will highlight the ongoing efforts to empower knowledge sharing and collaboration with those across the Military, Defense, Law Enforcement, Industry and Academic sectors at the local, state and national level.
The turnover in administration over to President Biden and the confirmation of new DHS Secretary Mayorkas also means a shift in priorities. Recent developments such as the Solarwinds hack, the January 6 Capitol storming and the continued migrant influx at the US-Mexico border have highlighted the need for technology, strategies and approaches to bolster the homeland security of the United States against emerging threats and challenges. This event will cover diverse topics ranging from border security technologies, offensive and defensive cybersecurity strategy, counter UAS tactics and tools, intelligence sharing, infrastructure protection and resilience, identity technology, agency collaboration, budget planning and much more.
For years the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA) has continually brought together the top minds in the homeland defense and security spheres at our Homeland Security Week event for thought leadership, industry collaboration and the development of best practices. We at IDGA are thrilled to once again host our esteemed Homeland Security Week Summit on July 28-30, where attendees can meet and collaborate with dozens of speakers and industry leaders on a multitude of topics.
Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, our event will be taking place completely digitally within our virtual conference platform, OnAir, which has extensive networking, interaction and collaborative capabilities. With multiple tracks, keynote sessions from senior leaders, panels from topic experts and interactive discussion groups, this year’s event is shaping up to be a groundbreaking conference with opportunities to share and learn. We look forward to welcoming you this summer!
