Border management and immigration, cyber security and emergency response and disaster relief will be among the topics discussed as the four-day Homeland Security Week conference opens Monday (October 6) at th Washington Convenion Center.

Government officials scheduled to attend include  U.S. Border Patrol Chief Michal Fisher, Randolph Alles, the head of the Air and Marine Office at Customs and Border Protection and the chief technology officer at the Department of Homeland Security,  Wolfe Tombe. Experts from government, academia and industry will be participating in panel discussions and roundtable sessions. Companies in a wide range of the security industry including thermal imaging, radar, video cameras, law enforcement equipment and information technology security will be in the exhibit hall.

Maritime security, battling transnational organized crime — particularly in the areas of narcotics and money laundering — and weapons of mass destruction  will also be discussed at the event, sponsored by the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA)

Your 4GWAR editor will be there catching up with old colleagues and sources. Here’s a story we got out of last year’s event.
