Challenges in the Homeland Security Enterprise

INSA is pleased to partner with the University of Chicago to host Challenges in the Homeland Security Enterprise: The Future of Information Sharing and Data Integration, featuring keynote remarks from Jane Holl Lute, former deputy secretary of Homeland Secretary. The event will take place, Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Other speakers include:

  • Dawn Scalici, Government Global Business Director, Thomson Reuters
  • Kelli Ann Burriesci, Principal Deputy Director, Terrorist Screening Center
  • Patricia Cogswell, Key Intelligence Officer, Immigration and Customs Enforcement
  • Janice Gardner, former Chief of Staff, National Counterterrorism Center

One of the greatest challenges to any organization large or small, is maintaining effective and secure information sharing practices. This challenge looms especially large for a federal agency with a wide-ranging mandate and with a primary purpose to safeguard the homeland. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is made up of more than 20 operational and support components and employs more than 240,000 individuals.

With an ever-expanding inventory of databases and information-sharing platforms, how can DHS maintain effective and secure information sharing across the homeland security enterprise, including interagency and international partners, industry, and state and local authorities? How can improved information sharing and data integration increase security while also guarding our privacy, civil rights and civil liberties? Further, how can new technologies be leveraged to make information sharing more efficient and reveal potential new real-time analysis regarding emerging threats?

Please join us for a discussion among experts, across government and industry, around the importance of sharing information and breaking down silos. Register no later than Friday, March 30, 2018.
