Overview

homeland security and Law enforcement forum:

a matter of trust - data, cybersecurity and biometrics - is it you?

description:

The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we live, work, travel, shop and communicate.  We wear masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect ourselves and each other.  Network connectivity delivers our telework-enabled workplace and entertainment to our homes.  If and when we travel, we move with a heightened attention to safety and hygiene.  We avoid crowds.  As we move, communicate, and transact in this new environment, our data becomes our persona.

Homeland Security and Law Enforcement agencies at every level - Local, State, Tribal and Federal - have had to rapidly adapt their policies, processes and tools to execute their missions in this rapidly evolving landscape.  New mission priorities demand new capabilities and tools.  A wide range of threats and bad actors seek to exploit vulnerabilities in this environment with an eye towards cyber security, data and infrastructure vulnerabilities.  New operational challenges require new infrastructure, systems and playbooks to protect responders and citizens.  Agencies are evaluating the utility of biometrics tools to provide "touchless" experiences that maximize health, safety, and hygiene.  All stakeholders are prioritizing "trust" as a key attribute for new systems, solutions and processes, seeking high-trust experiences that protect identity, hygiene, communications and citizens from wide-ranging threats.

This forum brings together homeland security and law enforcement leaders from Government, Industry and Academia to explore these trends and lessons learned.  Presenters and panelists will address the following topics:

  • New mission and operational challenges driven by COVID-19 demands
  • How COVID-19 has changed the threat landscape
  • Cybersecurity challenges in a tele-work enabled and socially-distanced environment
  • The growing role of data and digital identity in support of law enforcement and homeland security missions
  • New priorities and initiatives that have grown out of the current environment

objectives:

Achieve increased understanding of the challenges that Law Enforcement and Homeland Security mission owners are facing in the current environment
Increase awareness of active initiatives focused on delivering high-trust data, cybersecurity and biometrics solutions that support law enforcement and protect the homeland
Obtain lessons learned and best practices to date
