NDIA’s 2010 Biometrics Conference, January 20-21, 2010 in Arlington, VA, will discuss practical approaches to President Obama’s challenges to "find the needle in the Federal haystack.”
Arlington, VA (Vocus) January 12, 2010 -- President Obama said we “failed to connect the dots” on the Christmas bomber in his recent address to the Nation. NDIA’s 2010 Biometrics Conference, January 20-21, 2010 in Arlington, VA, will discuss practical approaches to President Obama’s challenges to "find the needle in the Federal haystack.”
Key members of the Federal government’s policy, screening, privacy, technology & standards, international and private sectors will discuss how to connect the dots: screen and identify possible threats with a higher level of accuracy and efficiency. Presenters are from the White House, DHS, DOJ, DOD, NYPD, as well as Mexico, Australia, Canada, and Pakistan.
Speakers include The Honorable James Clapper, Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Gen Michael Hayden, USAF (Ret), Former Director, CIA & Deputy Director, National Intelligence.
Homeland Presidential Directive 24 (HSPD-24), June 2008, addresses the overall goal to connect the dots cross the spectrum of Federal, State and local authorities with oversight for 115 airports, 14 seaports, 150 land ports, 220 consulates and two sea borders and the two land borders with numerous waterways. HSPD-24 creates a framework for biometric and biographical information to create a network of networks to defeat terrorist networks but the specific implementation is still ongoing.
President Obama set forth specific goals to accelerate the good progress of implementing HSPD-24. Additionally, he has allocated significant additional resources and revenues to improve security.
NDIA’s 2010 Biometric Conference has been designed to be an open forum for identifying and discussing practical approaches to the challenges of meeting President Obama’s directive to improve the intelligence community's ability to collect, share, integrate, analyze, and act on intelligence swiftly and effectively.
