FBI and DEA to Join DHS, ODNI, and DoD and at Upcoming Border Security & Intelligence Summit

On January 31- February 1, 2017, senior leaders within DHS, the Intelligence Community, DoD, Dept. of Justice, State and local agencies, Industry and academia will convene in Alexandria, VA, for two days of off the record briefings and informal discussions at Defense Strategies Institute’s "Town Hall" Border Security and Intelligence Summit. Our central theme will be on “Improving all- source intelligence and operational capabilities for a joint environment.”

Washington, DC, January 03, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Understanding the emerging threats to our borders and national security is dependent on the collection, gathering, analysis and sharing of intelligence and information from a broad array of sources on a continual basis. Partnerships to share intelligence and information and operational capabilities, among the IC community, federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial law enforcement, international government agencies, and the private sector act as force multipliers towards protecting the Homeland.

“We have created a Summit that will bring together a variety of stakeholders in order to build out two days of discussion and debates that tackle many of the areas involved in enhancing effective and efficient intelligence sharing and operational capabilities among the border security community,” stated Monica Mckenzie, Senior Partner, Defense Strategies Institute.

DSI’s upcoming Summit recognizes that in a field such as border security and intelligence, where there are multiple agents acting in tandem, it is extremely important that all involved are working towards a cohesive and holistic approach.
