Finding Opportunity in Disruption

We are pleased to welcome Acting Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Andrew McCabe and Representative Jack Bergman (MI-1) who will give keynote remarks. Reuters journalists and photojournalists will help set the stage by sharing their recent experiences and insights from reporting on domestic and international, and we will then dive into panel discussions that will address various aspects of change and disruption we are experiencing domestically, globally and technologically, to include:

  • News in the New Era with Reuters journalists – What’s real? What's fake? And what matters?
  • Challenges posed by insider threats, government initiatives underway to address the issue, and the impact of technological advances in both propagating and disrupting such threats
  • Changes in the global trade landscape and best practices relevant to trade enforcement and addressing supply chain risk
  • Technological advancements regarding digital identity and its application for national security missions to include screening and vetting to protect the Homeland

Learn from your peers and industry experts about how they are navigating these complex topics and help us expand the dialog on ways in which the public and private sectors can come together and work creatively and effectively to advance mission.
