Initiatives and Strategies at the DSI's Intelligence Exploitation Summit

By [email protected] - 20th June 2019 - 21:50

Discussions at the Defence Strategies Institute's 2019 Intelligence Exploitation Summit will revolve around the technical challenges of the Intelligence Community (IC) and the creation of interoperable and shared systems.

As computing and data mining technologies advance, intelligence agencies must develop new strategies to improve information sharing capabilities throughout the IC. The shift to the cloud has helped create an improved method of data sharing and enhanced way of securing sensitive information, however there are still challenges the IC must overcome. One challenge is the ability to share and process large volumes of data to ensure the right information is being shared to help prevent threats against national security.

Discussions at DSI’s 2019 Intelligence Exploitation Summit (Washington D.C. 23-24 July 2019) will revolve around the technical challenges of the IC and the creation of interoperable and shared systems. Military intelligence organizations, senior members of the intelligence community and industry partners will convene in Washington, DC for this two-day summit emphasizing the critical need for the rapid acquisition and development of modern data management practices to better secure and share sensitive information

To this end, the summit will feature senior level-speakers and sessions including:
