A Look Ahead: The Security Industry and the Government
Industry leaders give their perspective on the role of the government marketplace for the security industry—where it is, and where it’s going. ​

Insights from the Hill
Key congressional staffers share insights on the relationship between Congress, its committees, federal agencies and the security industry. Panelists will also discuss recent policy developments and how security solutions providers can contribute to the process.

Security and the States
Representatives of state and local governments discuss emerging security trends, policies being debated in state legislatures and how security dollars are allocated for security programs.

Convergence of Physical and Logical Security
The “Internet of Everything” is revolutionizing the security industry. This session will help define convergence at the micro and macro levels, and examine its implications for the security industry.

Contracting with the Government: Tips from Seasoned Veterans
Industry pros discuss opportunities for small and large businesses to work together, the benefits and challenges of the GSA supply schedules program, vehicles for contracting with state and local governments and the importance of being vigilant on evolving Federal regulations that can impact your business.

Making the Biometric Exit System a Reality
Key insiders discuss legislation implementing the biometric exit system for foreign visitors, a vitally important national security measure called for by the 9/11 Commission.
