Past event: Homeland Security Week Summit

Join us In-Person in the DC Metro Area and Explore the Latest Homeland Security Priorities for the U.S. Law Enforcement Agencies in 2023 and Beyond

With a new year comes new goals, priorities and challenges for stakeholders involved in Homeland Defense and Security for the United States. This senior and expert-led Summit will highlight the ongoing efforts to empower knowledge sharing and collaboration with those across the Military, Defense, Law Enforcement, Industry and Academic sectors at the local, state and national level.

Recent developments have highlighted the need for technology, strategies and approaches to bolster the homeland security of the United States against emerging threats. This event will cover diverse topics ranging from border security, cybersecurity, counter UAS, intelligence sharing, infrastructure protection and resilience, identity technology, agency collaboration, budget planning and much more.

For years we have continually brought together the top minds in the homeland defense and security spheres at our Homeland Security Week event for thought leadership, industry collaboration and the development of best practices. We are thrilled to once again host our esteemed Homeland Security Week Summit for three days on January 24-26, 2023. Join us on-site, where attendees can meet and collaborate with speakers and industry leaders on a multitude of topics.

With keynote sessions from senior leaders, panels from topic experts and interactive discussion groups, this year's event is shaping up to be a groundbreaking conference with opportunities to share and learn. We look forward to welcoming you this winter!
