Unified, Interagency Requirements to Ensure a Systematic Approach to National Security

With recent threats from various terrorist organizations, radical factions, and lone wolves becoming more and more sophisticated, the need to ensure that our nation’s security at home and abroad are strongly monitored at all times by a multifaceted, interagency effort, is a necessity. Without superb intelligence, operational assets, and flawless unified communication across all stakeholders, the threat of a catastrophic outcome is an ever-increasing reality.

The 10th Annual Homeland Security Week (HSW) will provide homeland security stakeholders with an industry event focusing on further developing the requirements necessary for numerous government agencies, all directly or indirectly responsible for US homeland security, to facilitate a complex, joint, multilayered plan that will combat the evolving threat our country faces – all while ensuring the support of the communities they serve.
