Homeland Security Week 2016 Conference

  • Homeland Security Week 2016
  • 1 November, 2016 - 3 November, 2016, Washington, DC, United States

With recent threats from various terrorist organizations, radical factions, and lone wolves becoming more and more sophisticated, the need to ensure that our nation's security at home and abroad are strongly monitored at all times by a multifaceted, interagency effort, is a necessity. Without superb intelligence, operational assets, and flawless unified communication across all stakeholders, the threat of a catastrophic outcome is an ever-increasing reality.

The 11th Annual Homeland Security Week taking place October 17-19 at Sheraton Pentagon City, will bring together top homeland security leaders from government, industry and academia alike to take a deep dive into current challenges and future requirements necessary for numerous government agencies, all directly or indirectly responsible for U.S. homeland security, to facilitate a complex, joint, multilayered plan to combat the evolving challenges our country faces.

Join 200+ attendees and speakers for interactive keynote presentations, large scale panel discussions, project updates, case studies, intimate roundtables, product demonstrations and more. Now in its 11th successful year, Homeland Security Week 2016 is the educational platform for discussing the future of homeland security.
