The success of U.S. Intelligence’s mission to provide the decision advantage to all who act in defense of the nation requires a trusted partnership between the public and private sectors and the public it serves, as well as with foreign partners.  This trusted partnership can best be achieved through regular and open dialogue to create a shared understanding of the current state of U.S. Intelligence, its priorities for the future, the effect of its policies on both its partners in the private sector and the public, its foreign partners, and its simultaneous need for secrecy and the trust of the public in the prosecution of its mission.


AFCEA International (AFCEA) and the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) are pleased to host the second Intelligence and National Security Summit to provide the platform for this essential discussion. This two-day, unclassified Summit will feature five plenary sessions with top federal agency leaders and policymakers sharing their assessments and priorities for U.S. national, defense and homeland security intelligence. In addition, thought leaders from government, industry and academia will explore emerging issues and solutions related to intelligence policy, cyber threats, and technology and innovation over nine breakout sessions.
