Past event: Homeland Security Week 2019

Welcome to the Premier National Security Conference of the Year!

We are thrilled to invite you all to an exciting 14th annual Homeland Security Week 2019 (HSW). This year we are taking the event to the heart of downtown Washington D.C. at the Grand Hyatt Washington. With the rise of national security threats both domestic and foreign, forums like HSW play a vital role in acting as a catalyst that spurs partnerships, discussions and knowledge sharing between law enforcement agencies, industry and academia.

Homeland Security Week will bring together 50+ speakers and 350+ executives and attendees from DHS, local law enforcement, military, industry and academia from across the US to discuss the ever changing challenges & threats facing our borders, trade, critical infrastructures and local law enforcement. This year's speaker faculty will cover the following key themes during their presentations, interactive discussion groups and panels:

Key themes running throughout the summit include:

  • Border Security
  • Various uses of biometric technologies
  • Cybersecurity threats and solutions
  • Protecting critical national infrastructures
  • Countering sUAS threats
  • Intelligence gathering and processing
  • Improving intelligence sharing among law enforcement agencies
  • Identifying key markers for radicalization
  • New solutions for first responders
  • Protecting cities from CBRN threats
  • Potential uses and threats posed by AI
We at Homeland Security Week pride ourselves to play our part in encouraging a dialogue between industry and law enforcement agencies which spurs a better understanding of the capability gaps, short and long term acquisition priorities and showcasing cutting edge technologies. Keeping in mind the wide scope of HSW we have created multiple tracks to give you an opportunity personalize your experience by letting you pick and choose from a wide variety of topics that meet your interests. We look forward to meeting you all on site and welcoming you to the premier Homeland Security event!
