Upcoming Homeland Security Events

New York, Feb 14, 2005

Members of the ANSI Homeland Security Standards Panel (ANSI-HSSP) and other interested parties are invited to attend the 2005 Homeland & Global Security Summit, scheduled for March 2-3, 2005 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington DC. The event will showcase the latest information from the nation's homeland security leaders.

The general session will feature members of Congress and homeland security professionals addressing funding priorities as well as leaders from other countries – including Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom – discussing their own respective national security concerns. Billed by organizers as “the most influential homeland security event in the United States,” the conference offers workshops on new business opportunities resulting from the massive intelligence overhaul; doing business with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); port and cargo security programs and funding; BioDefense programs and funding; identifying homeland security opportunities within the Department of Justice and FBI; funding priorities of first responders; and more.
