January 23-24, 2024- Arlington, VA, United States

Join us In-Person in the DC Metro Area and Explore the Latest Homeland Security Priorities for the U.S. Law Enforcement Agencies in 2024 and Beyond

The continually evolving landscape of homeland security has proven to bring unique challenges. With each incarnation of our Homeland Security Summit Week we have persisted in bringing forth the most pertinent topics of discourse. This year, we have prepared an event centered on the most pressing issues discovered in our extensive industry research. These issues include safeguarding and securing cyberspace networks, ensuring against the evolving threat to the US homeland, countering biological threats and hazards, and the unique challenges faced by law enforcement. During the duration of this event we will be platforming experts from across the Military, Defense, Law Enforcement, Industry and Academic sectors at the local, state and national level to facilitate a discourse essential to our understanding of the current state of Homeland Security in the United States.

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 two days on January 23-24, 2024. 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 will be a groundbreaking conference with opportunities to share and learn. We look forward to welcoming you this winter!
