Deputy Under Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Dr. Robert Griffin will give the keynote at the International Disaster Conference & Expo (IDCE), focusing on how data can make communities smarter, more resilient, and safer.
In the age of Internet-of-Things, actionable data must be intuitive, instinctive, interoperable, and support operational users. Why is this important? Delivering data at the right time, at the right speed and in the right amount can result in faster and more proactive responses, better services, lower costs, improved information sharing, and better resource allocation. Dr. Griffin will discuss getting the data to the streets and determining what is the right amount of “need to know.”
