Homeland Security Conference

March 10-11, 2015

Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center

Washington, DC

Coordinated Response, Integrated Security

More than any other operations, homeland security missions call for coordinated and end-to-end collaboration. Success depends on preparing for the unknowable, preventing the unthinkable and planning recovery from the unimaginable.

To assist in the process, AFCEA International brings together the people in charge of ensuring success—from subject matter experts to frontline responders—for two days of open discussion about the various aspects of homeland security. The 2015 line-up of speakers and panelists will explore integrated security and the Internet of Things; emergency management; FirstNet; and the importance of sharing information among other topics, including Ebola crisis management.

Invited homeland security experts include:
• Cathy Lanier, Chief, DC Metropolitan Police
• Luke McCormack, Chief Information Officer, Department of Homeland Security
• Dr. Christina Murata, Chief of Staff, Office of the Undersecretary for Science and Technology, DHS
• Kevin Boshears, Director, Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization
• TJ Kennedy, General Manager, FirstNet

NGA Industry Day 2015

March 16, 2015

NGA Campus East, Springfield, VA


Information-sharing and partnering are essential for keeping our nation ahead of today’s complex security threats. To facilitate government-industry innovation, AFCEA Intelligence and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) are sponsoring a full-day classified (SECRET) event dedicated to identifying areas of possible collaboration and business opportunity to help enable and accelerate NGA’s strategic vision. The event will be held at NGA’s Springfield facility on March 16, 2015.

NGA Director, Robert Cardillo, will kick off the day, sharing his perspective on the importance of the partnership between NGA and industry and how to best leverage that relationship to provide the tools, advanced technology, sophisticated techniques, and specialized expertise that enable Team NGA to provide decisive mission consequence for its customers.

Coast Guard Intelligence Industry Day

April 2, 2015

TASC Heritage Conference Center

Chantilly, VA

With a confirmed speaker line-up including VADM John P. Currier, Vice Commandant of the Coast Guard, and RADM Christopher J. Tomney, Assistant Commandant for Coast Guard Intelligence and Criminal Investigations, this industry day will provide valuable background to enable the private sector to better partner with the Coast Guard.

The agenda will explore the Coast Guard’s unique missions and authorities and explain how industry can work to ensure interoperability among assets as well as with the other four armed services and branches of the government.

Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the Coast Guard Intelligence vision and direction in a changing fiscal and operational environment, plus a sense of what technologies, capabilities, and services are needed most by Coast Guard Intelligence professionals.

NRO Industry Day

April 22, 2015

Chantilly, VA

Over the last five decades National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) systems have provided the nation with unmatched global surveillance capabilities supporting warfighters and national decision makers. The foundation of this success has been based on an enduring partnership between the NRO and its industrial base.

Looking forward, the continued success of this critical mission requires that the NRO and industry expand and improve this partnership and fully exploit the Intelligence Community's information sharing enterprise. This will involve more use of non-traditional partners to increase innovation, refresh ideas and examine best practices. To facilitate government-industry innovation, AFCEA Intelligence and the NRO are sponsoring a full-day classified (TS/SI/TK/NOFORN) event dedicated to identifying areas of possible collaboration and business opportunity to help enable and accelerate the NRO's strategic vision.

Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium

May 5- 7, 2015

Baltimore, MD Convention Center

The U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency’s new operational role in the cyber domain as network defender creates a formal relationship between DISA, U.S. Cyber Command and the command’s military service components. The goal is to improve security, but a successful strategy depends on a matrix of participating organizations adapting technical solutions and adopting enterprise management to improve efficiency, security and reliability.

Linked by a commitment to cybersecurity, this community of partners will gather to discuss and present on operational themes such as the the teamwork, relevant guidance and priorities, and associated perspectives of mission partners united in the development of an integrated approach to operating and defending the network.
