Registration for our third annual DHS Strategic Industry Conversation is open and I invite our industry partners to register here. This year’s event will be held in Washington, D.C. on October 19, 2017. This full-day event provides a venue for DHS leaders to discuss with industry program‑specific topics that span multiple Components and impact DHS Unity of Effort.
This year, the Honorable Claire M. Grady, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary and Under Secretary for Management, will provide the event’s keynote remarks. Deputy Under Secretary for Management Chip Fulghum will kick off the plenary panel featuring the DHS C-suite discussing the Management Directorate’s integrated priorities. I look forward to being part of this panel discussion.
Mission areas of focus this year include cybersecurity, aviation security, border security, law enforcement, information technology, and threats to the homeland.
