Intelligence Exploitation Summit 2021

Advancing Intelligence IT to Enable IC Collaboration and Sharing

August 11-12, 2021- Alexandria, VA, United States

The 6th annual Intelligence Exploitation Summit will focus on integrating intelligence sources to enhance the analysis and exploitation of data to support critical DoD and IC operations. With the continuous increases in computing and data mining technologies across the IC, there is a need to improve intelligence exploitation and sharing techniques. A shift towards cloud computing and the continuous efforts for integration across the IC will allow for greater inter-agency collaboration and intelligence capabilities. The 2021 Summit will address the continuing efforts of the IC to create shared systems and avoid stove piping actionable intelligence. Intelligence leaders will also highlight the shift to the cloud as an improved method of data sharing and an enhanced way of securing sensitive information.

Why You Should Attend This Summit

This educational Summit will enable the Intelligence Community, military intelligence organizations and industry partners to come together in a collaborative, town-hall forum to encourage open and honest conversation regarding the technical challenges of the IC and creating interoperable and shared systems.

Since the release of the 2019 National Intelligence Strategy there has been an effort throughout the Intelligence Community to increase collaboration and integrate intelligence systems. This shift to cloud computing and enterprise systems will enable analysts across the IC to garner better actionable intelligence but will also cause them to deal with a glut in data. While technology has advanced rapidly over the past few years it is not enough to sift through the amount of information available and create actionable intelligence needed at the pace that is required in the modern world. With the creation of a joint enterprise across the IC the hopes are that analysts will reduce stove piping and duplication of efforts allowing for a more efficient and capable intelligence apparatus.

This symposium will feature senior-level discussions that emphasize the critical need for the rapid acquisition and development of intelligence IT capabilities across all services. This program will allow for open and honest dialogue to solve the nation's most difficult technical and strategic challenges.
