Intelligence and National Security Summit

The State of U.S. Intelligence: Priorities, Plans and Partnerships

September 9-10, 2015

Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.

The success of the U.S. Intelligence mission to provide the decision advantage to all who act in defense of the nation requires a trusted partnership between the public and private sectors, the public it serves, and its foreign partners. This trusted partnership can best be achieved through regular and open dialogue. This dialogue facilitates a shared understanding of the current state of U.S. Intelligence and its priorities for the future. In addition, it helps Intelligence agencies and the private sector understand the effect policies have on its partners in the private sector, the public and its foreign partners while meeting its simultaneous need for secrecy and the trust of the public in the prosecution of its mission.


AFCEA International and the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) are pleased to host the second Intelligence and National Security Summit. The two-day, unclassified summit features five plenary sessions during which top federal intelligence and national security leaders will share their assessments and priorities for U.S. national, defense and homeland security intelligence. In addition, thought leaders from the federal and public sectors will explore emerging issues in the domains of cyber operations, technology/innovation and intelligence policy during nine break-out sessions.
