Course Description:

Even though DHS was formed over a dozen years ago, the challenges facing the U. S. homeland are readily apparent to the keen observer. Whether those challenges are in the cyber domain as evidenced by recent corporate breaches of Target and Neiman Marcus or in the critical infrastructure domain as brazenly demonstrated by the sniper attacks on an energy company in Silicon Valley, the need for continued partnership between government and industry remains tantamount. We cannot take our eyes off the mission when we, as a Nation, have so much at stake.

This course, started by Jim Flyzik, former Senior Technology Advisor in the White House Office of Homeland Security, explores the complexities of Homeland Security and provides an arsenal of information which will arm you to understand and do business with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Attendees will receive access to the Homeland Security Digital Library hosted by the Naval Postgraduate School.  By participating in this course attendees will have the opportunity to meet guest speakers who represent various portions of DHS and other U.S. Government organizations which have homeland security or homeland defense responsibilities. These experts will provide insight into DHS and the larger homeland security enterprise and decipher roles and responsibilities of the various organizations and agencies that interact with DHS.

This course has a companion course "Part 2" on the day following "Part 1". Part 2 of the course focuses on business development in homeland security.

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Directors and Above from across industry and government responsible for Emergency Response or Science and Technology.
