These agencies need to enable reliable and resilient IT services to support data-driven decisions for keeping our nation secure.  Law enforcement must maximize the use of cloud computing, modernized applications, securely managed systems, and mobile-accessible solutions that ensure timely access to reliable data for decision making. What are agencies doing and what kind of partnership do they need from industry to protect our nation from all types of threats?

In the CXO IT Modernization panel, leaders from our top law enforcement agencies will discuss how they are leveraging digital technology and innovation to keep the nation safe.

In every breakout room, a government leader will be paired with an industry facilitator for an insightful group discussion. Each table will have focused conversation around one of these critical topic areas:

  • Cybersecurity - Cyber-attacks are increasing in volume and sophistication, highlighting the need for advanced data protection and user behavior analytics. Moreover, with the ubiquity of digital devices, digital evidence is increasingly important to the investigation and prosecution of many types of crimes. Roundtable discussions will focus on these topics, as well as the latest incident response and preparedness techniques needed to keep the nation safe.
  • Data Analytics - Law enforcement leaders have increasing access to a wider variety and larger amounts of data than ever before. They must develop both strategic and tactical plans to enhance data and analytics capabilities across their organizations to empower mission end-users, secure sensitive data, and balance needs for transparency and privacy. Roundtable discussions will focus on how agencies can leverage artificial intelligence (AI), machine-learning (ML) and other automation to become more effective and efficient.
  • Modernization of Training – An ever-changing world has forced agencies to rethink training practices for law enforcement and public safety officers with more emphasis on augmented reality/simulations training, e-learning, and remote training. The migration to the cloud requires stronger and secure cyber capacity for remote training and data storage, and modernizing skills in the technology workforce is critical to future mission success. Roundtable discussions will focus on the strategies and technologies needed to upskill and reskill the workforce in a changing landscape.

Massive cyber-espionage campaigns are impacting business and government, most recently, SolarWinds. Law enforcement has dual roles to investigate cyber-espionage on both business and government, as well as protecting their own organizations from attack including exploring strategies and technology to better track cyber adversaries. Cybercriminals and Nation-state hackers are increasingly more aggressive, exploiting weaknesses in the supply chain to penetrate business and government and critical infrastructure networks to mine for information. At the same time, cybercrime is now big business. Law enforcement needs secure reliable information to combat increasingly sophisticated attacks. Technology is a key weapon. Technology drives the infrastructure delivering the information, as well as the methods and tools used to investigate.

In the Executive Panel on Cybersecurity, leading law enforcement experts from major federal agencies will discuss what cyber and digital technologies are used to keep our nation safe from all attacks—cyber and physical.

Topics include:

  • Advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning
