Why You Should Attend This Symposium:

Our 9th Annual Joint Civil & DoD CBRN Symposium will provide the latest updates on US efforts to advance chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defense. This forum will convene senior-level officials from throughout the military, government, and academia to share their insights into successful CBRN incident detection, protection, and recovery strategies, as well as R&D initiatives, updates on joint CBRN requirements, and developments in inter-agency cooperation.

Our Symposium's speakers will examine the efforts across the whole of government for enhancing CBRN preparedness, prevention, response and mitigation initiatives across the full spectrum of CBRN threats, whether they be a manmade, accidental, or naturally occurring. The COVID-19 outbreak has shown the world the consequences that a CBRN event can have and the lengths that we need to enhance our preparedness and response capabilities.

Attendees at our 2021 Joint Civil & DoD CBRN Symposium will have a unique opportunity to engage in open and honest conversation with key decision makers from across the DoD, DHS, FBI and HHS about countering CBRN WMD effects. Attendees will gain valuable insights into navigating the CBRN technology acquisition process and will hear about the solutions urgently needed by our government to ensure we are prepared for any future threats we may face at home or abroad.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the CBRN defense community, including operational leaders, intelligence providers, key policymakers and solution providers from Industry and Academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group.
