- Our Border Security & Intelligence Summit is a unique forum that allows for personnel from DHS, DoD, IC, Federal and State Agencies, Industry and Academia to convene in one location. Our "Town Hall" format is designed to encourage challenging discussion and dialogue amongst all in attendance.
- By keeping our forum off-the record and non-attribution, we allow for a level of stream of consciousness and shared ideas and thoughts to flow freely. Our agendas cover the most current priorities and strive to achieve actionable takeaways for all in attendance.
- We limit our attendance size in order to allow everyone a chance to actively participate in the discussions and to mix and mingle with each other easily over the two days we are together.
- We encourage you to explore our site more, give us a call if you have any questions, and we hope to welcome you in January!
- The security of our borders and Nation will continue to be tested by new and emerging threats. "The U.S. borders, - land, maritime, and air environments - cannot be effectively policed by a single DHS Component or even a single governmental entity". A joint / layered / whole-of-government approach that leverages interagency and international partnerships as a force multiplier will continue to be the most effective way to secure the borders.
- Understanding the emerging threats to our borders and national security is dependent on the collection, gathering, analysis and sharing of intelligence and information from a broad array of sources on a continual basis. Partnerships to share intelligence and information and operational capabilities, amongst the IC community, federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial law enforcement, international government agencies, and the private sector act as force multipliers towards protecting the Homeland.
- However, as transnational criminal organizations, violent extremists, and individual actors increase their levels of sophistication, our Homeland and National Security Agencies and their respective partners must continually improve their capabilities and leverage their strengths in joint information and intelligence sharing, and operational capabilities.
