On Thursday, February 27, 2014, Security Debrief and Catalyst Partners will host the First Annual Chris Battle Homeland Security Colloquium. What the heck is a colloquium? It is an informal gathering for the exchange of ideas and perspectives. Security Debrief’s expert contributors will come together to discuss and debate the current state of U.S. homeland security, DHS, and the threats and priorities the country will face in the year ahead.
Featured participants include:
- Ted Alden, Council on Foreign Relations
- Steven Bucci, Heritage Foundation
- Rich Cooper, Catalyst Partners
- Janice Kephart, Secure Identity & Biometrics Association
- Julie Myers Wood, Guidepost Solutions
- David Olive, Catalyst Partners
- Jeff Sural, Alston & Bird
Program participants will cover a range of homeland security issues, including (but not limited to): aviation security, cybersecurity, congressional oversight, immigration, the private sector, and science and technology.
The program is open to the public. If you work in the homeland security arena, or simply have an interest in this critical subject, please join us at 1250 Connecticut Ave., NW, in Washington, DC. The 90-minute program will begin at 8:30 AM, and there will be coffee and bagels for the early risers. We can’t promise the simple breakfast will last, but we can guarantee a fascinating and important discussion with some of America’s preeminent security experts.
The program is also a tribute to Security Debrief’s late founder, Chris Battle. His thoughts and perspectives, as well as his presence, will be greatly missed, but in coming together, we will honor his vision for Security Debrief and the free-flow of ideas on America’s most important security challenges.
