Past event: Homeland Security Week 2014

Collaborating to Defeat Evolving Threats by Supporting American Security

Now in its 4th year, Homeland Security Week 2014 will address the most pressing and pertinent issues within the DHS by working to bring together the necessary stakeholders to create a collaborative and valuable event.  Over the course of 4 days, attendees will have exclusive access to over 40 high level presentations on Homeland Security, access to 60+ exhibitors, and over 700+ attendees.

Today's threats come in many forms and the United States must be ready to detect and combat all forms of attack. This year, Homeland Security Week 2014 will focus on the highest mission priorities for protecting the US by examining the FY 2015 mission highlights. The event will bring together personnel from DHS, CBP, TSA, ICE, FBI, USCG, FEMA and more to discuss the most pressing issues facing the homeland defense community including:
  • Preventing Terrorism and Enhancing Security
  • Border Management & Immigration
  • Cybersecurity
  • Disaster Relief and Emergency Preparedness
  • Science & Technology

Homeland Security Week 2014
will feature presentations, discussions, and technology demonstrations on:

  • DHS' advanced fusion centers
  • Collaborating on joint border operations
  • The evolving role of cybersecurity in critical infrastructure protection
  • Implementing interoperable first responder communication capabilities
  • New equipment and technologies available to federal, state, and local law enforcement

Utilizing interactive keynote presentations, large scale panel discussions, project updates, case studies, intimate round tables, product demonstrations, and free presentation theater sessions, Homeland Security Week 2014 will be the educational platform to obtain all you need to know about the future of homeland security.  Departmental policy makers, uniformed service leaders, law enforcement and industry partners will gather in Washington D.C. to network, share best practices and expose potential paths to analyze the homeland security mission.

We hope you will join us for this year’s Homeland Security Week 2014 to experience the premier event in US security.
